In the past decade, there have been many disasters where the effects of the hazard impact were exacerbated by either the failure or lack of adequate planning methods.

Select one natural, technological, or human-caused disaster that has occurred in the past 20 years. A few examples include:

1. Hurricane Harvey

2. Japan disaster (nuclear power plant, earthquake, and tsunami)

3. Thomas, California fire (2017)

4. Colorado floods, Boulder county and surrounding areas (2013)
