Natural and technological disasters are a normal part of life. In every disaster, the physical and social infrastructure fails to protect people from conditions that threaten their well-being. This text considers the problem of disasters and relevant challenges, the variety of natural disasters that can occur, man made disasters that can occur, disaster preparedness and planning, and the human consequences of disasters. This book will be of interest to scientists and engineers as well as social and human scientists. Because of the universal character of disasters, this volume also has value for the general public.
