What's the worst natural disaster you've ever experienced?

Me personally, an F2 tornado and an 8.2 earthquake (although it was centered a few hundred miles away)

  • Flash Flood... we were in the car when it hit, but it was a little one, it didn't even come half way up the windows... We don't really get that stuff here.

  • It wasn't that bad but I lived in the Dominican Republic when a couple hurricanes hit. They didn't kill many people in the DR but they did kill a few hundred in Haiti :(

  • I've been through a F4 and F5 tornado as a kid, and a flash flood several years ago as an adult.

  • An F4 tornado when I was 9, and last year there was something called a gravity wave that hit during a storm. I'd never heard of it before. It came through about 3 in the morning. I remember waking up and thinking it was an earthquake, but went back to sleep. lol. Then when I went outside later that morning there were 2 HUGE trees literally dangling over our house, right over our and our LO's bedrooms. They were both being held up by one tree that was less than half their size. We were SOO lucky! Those trees were really big and if they had fallen all the way it would have killed us all. Found out several homes were destroyed and a few died because of these freak storm.
