Prepared for Disaster

While natural disasters have the potential to cause massive damage, their full potential shouldn't ever be realized. Any government should be prepared to protect against the initial damages of any disaster, as well have an effective clean up/damage control strategy to use after first impact. It's true that can be difficult to predict hurricanes, floods, earthquakes etc. This is exactly why the government needs to use all of it's scienitific knowledge and man power to prepare for the most likely and worst case scenereos. Some argue that natural disasters are security threats because they create a time of chaos that other hostile forces could exploit. This is only the case if the government does not have a sound infrastructure and comprhensive response strategies. Natural disasters are only serious threats to national security when a nation is completely unprepaired, by their own lack of planning.
