And from this terrible destruction will come new growth.

Creation has never been static; floods, land slides and wild fires (and even pandemics) are events which by design regenerate the Earth. We describe these events as "natural disasters" when we humans (and other creatures) get in the way. There is no doubt that the consequences are indeed disastrous -- loss of life, injury, loss of habitat and homes, loss of livelihood and more.

We humans have certainly done things which have made these natural events worse. But we have also done things which have mitigated the "disaster" caused by these natural events. Examples would include: tsunami warning systems, severe weather alerts, systems for managing storm water and flooding, seismic monitoring, protecting infrastructure from avalanches, and others.

Earth will regenerate and so will we.
