Historical Natural Hazards Database

Global database created by the National Geophysical Data Center which shows the locations of historic natural hazards, including earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.  The database includes socioeconomic information (i.e. number of fatalities, injuries, and damage information) and scientific data (i.e. earthquake magnitudes, tsunami intensity) for hazard events dating back to before 2000 BC.  The data points are color coded to show the number of fatalities and each placemark contains a link to the NGDC’s online database, which contains additional details for each event.
