    Many state standards along with NGSS include "natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and thunderstorms have local, national and global impacts; some hazards are more difficult to predict than others; disaster planners work with the scientific community to develop diverse ways to mitigate the impacts of natural hazards on the human population and on a given ecosystem." This clip I feel is a good introduction to this discussion.
