Natural Hazards

My love of all things NASA had me surfing around their website(s) the other day when I stumbled across a very interesting section on Natural Hazards.  I was amazed at what I found.  Check out the views from orbit of many natural disasters under their categorical headers of Fires, Severe Storms, Dust, Smoke, and Haze, Floods, Volcanoes and Earthquakes, Crops and Drought.  Of course, being a tabletop gamer, it also got me thinking about how much I might need to include in my own campaign setting.  The images will absolutely stun you.  Warning: These images are also large and very detailed.

A dust storm in the Middle East.

Fires in Australia.

Flooding in India.
