Natural Disaster
A natural environmental emergency is one that is determined by nature without direct influence from man.  These types of emergencies are things like hurricanes, tornadoes  earthquakes, mudslides, volcanic eruptions, etc. that we have no way to prevent or avoid, but can only prepare for in advance in order to survive (Crisis Management).
