Nepal -- In April 2015, an 8.1 earthquake killed more than 8,800 people and injured more than 23,000. The earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 19,making it the deadliest day on the mountain in history. It triggered another huge avalanche in the Langtang valley, where 250 people were reported missing.

Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened, across many districts of the country. Centuries-old buildings were destroyed at UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley, including some at the Kathmandu Durbar Square, the Patan Durbar Squar, the Bhaktapur Durbar Square, the Changu Narayan Temple and the Swayambhunath Stupa. The quake left children among the most vulnerable due to loss of housing, schools, and family members.

Flood Devastation Hits Australia

Queensland -- A series of floods hit Australia, beginning in December 2010 in the State of Queensland including its capital city, Brisbane. At least seventy towns and over 200,000 people have been affected. The estimated reduction in Australia's GDP is about $30 billion.

Victoria -- High intensity rains in January 2011 caused major flooding across the western and central parts of the Australian state of Victoria. Many of the towns were previously affected by floods in September 2010, however the 2011 floods affected at least 4 times as many properties. To compound an already troubled area, a tropical cyclone, Cyclone/Hurricane Yasi made landfall in northern Queensland in February 2010. Cyclone Yasi had sustained winds of 125 mph (205 km/h) with gusts of 180 of 180 mph (285 km/h). Based on these wind speeds Yasi was classified as a Category 5 cyclone using the Australian scale and a Category 4 using the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale typically used to classify Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones.
