*Hong Kong hospitals prepared for a worst-case scenario of
up to 3,000 cases of the deadly SARS virus by the end of April,
as the pneumonia-like disease claimed yet another victim in Canada. New cases in Hong Kong climbed by 42 on Sunday, to 842. The disease has a mortality rate of about 4 percent, roughly the same as measles and it is usually those with other serious illnesses who succumb. *In Australia, communities north-west of Melbourne are preparing to defend themselves against a 900-hectare fire after a government burn-off in parched state forest broke away overnight.

"The drought of the past five years has painfully demonstrated how vulnerable many areas of our State are to limitations on water supply in the face of increasing demands on those supplies." Drought Water-use restrictions lifted by EPD
(Jan. 14, 2003) Above-normal rainfall and building reservoirs and resources lead EPD to lift all water-use restrictions in place since 2000. Local water systems can still put restrictions in place, however. Please note, water conservation remains an important issue in Georgia and the lack of restrictions is not license to use water irresponsibly. Be Prepared
If normal caution hasn't already gotten you ready for a hurricane, now's the time. The last thing you want to be when a hurricane comes calling is unprepared. Here are some tips that can help you and your family weather the storm.

9. Why The United States Is Becoming More Vulnerable To Natural Disasters

Home Science and Society Science for Everyone Climate CLIMATE AND GLOBAL CHANGE Why the United States Is Becoming More Vulnerable to Natural Disasters Despite increases in what we know about natural disasters and how to protect ourselves against them, more and more people are concentrated along the coasts, where loss of life and property from these disasters are greatest. by G. van der Vink, R. M. Allen, J. Chapin, M. Crooks, W. Fraley, J. Krantz, A. M. Lavigne, A. LeCuyer, E. K. MacColl, W. J. Morgan, B. Ries, E. Robinson, K. Rodriquez, M. Smith, and K. Sponberg, Department of Geosciences, Princeton University, Princeton, N.J. The United States is becoming more vulnerable to natural hazards mostly because of changes in population and national wealth densitymore people and infrastructure have become concentrated in disaster-prone areas. For most of the 20th century, the United States has been largely spared the expense of a catastrophic natural disaster. A great earthquake (magnitude 8 or larger) has not struck a major metropolitan area since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. An extreme or catastrophic hurricane (Class 4 or 5) has not directly struck a major urban area since the one that hit Miami, Florida, in 1926. Yet even without such disasters, which might create losses well over $100 billion, the overall costs of natural hazards, such as extreme weather, drought, and wildfires, are estimated at $54 billion per year for the past 5 years, or approximately $1 billion per week.

IMF Emergency Assistance Related to Natural Disasters and Post-Conflict Situations
A Factsheet

March 2001 In addition to support under its regular and other special facilities, the IMF provides assistance under its emergency assistance specific facility to help members emerging from conflicts rebuild capacity and recover economic stability in post-conflict periods.
When does the IMF provide emergency assistance? In 1995, the IMF's policy on emergency assistance was expanded to cover countries in post-conflict situations. Post-conflict emergency assistance is provided in situations where a member with an urgent balance of payment need is unable to develop and implement a comprehensive economic program because its capacity has been damaged by a conflict, but where nevertheless sufficient capacity for planning and policy implementation exists. When the IMF steps in to help meet the special needs of post-conflict countries, it does so as part of a concerted international effort, with different multilateral agencies and bilateral donors taking the lead role in coordinating and mobilizing assistance. How does the IMF provide emergency assistance?

Seventy per cent of Africa is desert or dryland, and some three-quarters of the agricultural drylands are already degraded. Half of Africa’s population lives in the drylands. Latin America and Caribbean
Outside the Amazon River basin, desertification is a growing problem in Latin America and the Caribbean, and most of the countries in this region are affected by the problem. From dryland ecosystems in the high mountains to lowland plains, areas vulnerable to desertification cover one third of the continent inhabited by 25 per cent of the population. Many of the Caribbean islands have special desertification problems that are linked to fragile island ecosystems. Asia and Russia
Severe environmental deterioration has occurred in many of the nations that formerly comprised the Soviet Union and there has been catastrophic deterioration of some of the world’s largest bodies of water, such as the Caspian, Black, and Aral Seas as well as Lake Sevan. Half the land in Kazakhstan is now considered desert landscape, and 60 per cent of the country suffers from desertification, mostly due to the excessive use of water in the past.
Other Asian countries suffer from the effects of desertification.

Weather - Dealing With Drought
Imagine being told you can't have a bath? For some of us this might be kinda cool, but after a few weeks the smell might change your mind. When there hasn't been rain for a long time and water has to be used sparingly you might need to go without a bath. But that's the only good thing about a drought. A drought is a long period of dry weather that causes some serious problems like crop damage, a shortage of water, fire and dust. I'm not talking a week or two without rain. More like a few months to years. A drought isn't determined by the number of days that go by. It depends on the amount of moisture before and after the dry period and the length and size of the area without water. If it doesn't rain for a while, farmers and cities can be in some serious trouble. It doesn't take long. A few weeks without rain will make people panic and crops shrivel. Nobody can wash their cars, water their lawn or take long showers. People and animals start dying of thirst and large areas are destroyed by dust storms or fire. During the 1930s the Dust Bowl drought was a natural disaster that seriously affected the Great Plains of the United States. It covered an alarming area - about 50 million acres. It came in three waves: 1934, 1936 and 1939-1940 but some regions of the Plains were stuck with the Dust Bowl for almost eight years. The Dust Bowl was caused by years of dry land and very dry soil that was easily picked up by wind. Great clouds of dust and sand, called black blizzards, became so thick they blocked out the sun for days.

19. Some Natural Disasters Etc.
(ii) per the (United States') National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration( NOAA ), 20th Century drought related natural disasters claiming significant
SOME NATURAL DISASTERS and/or CATASTROPHES A GENERAL INTRODUCTION Many people are affected natural disasters each year - although to very differing degrees. Is it possible to quantify the numbers of people affected annually? Per the OFDA/CRED International Disaster Database, around 2.4 billion people were (directly) affected by natural disasters during the period 1990 to 2001 inclusive (some more than once?). The following charts identify distributions by (i) cause and (ii) region: The data base identifies around 3,700 events - the event shown as affecting the most people was flooding in China during 1998 with approaching 230 million people affected. Interestingly, of six events affecting more than 100 million people, five occurred in China - the other in India. All related to flooding. A 2002 Update - per the data base, around 620 million people were affected by natural disasters during 2002 - approaching 50% of these people by drought in India, recorded in many States. AVALANCHES (i) it is understood that during the Second Punic War, Hannibal led his army through the Alps on his way to attack Rome (during late 218 B.C.) - at the start of the journey the force comprised around 100,000 soldiers and horsemen (the column was led by elephants). Winter storms had left many slopes covered in blankets of snow - it is estimated that almost 20,000 men died during the journey (as well as up to 2,000 horses and a number of elephants) - many as a result of avalanches (others, after falling into crevasses hidden by snowfall).

20. Statistics 2 - Costly United States Natural Disasters
the NOAA has issued a basic summary of (weather related natural disaster) events costsare included for widescale, long-lasting events such as drought .
(WEATHER RELATED) NATURAL DISASTER COSTS RESULTING FROM UNITED STATES US$ BILLION EVENTS - OCCURRING DURING THE PERIOD 1980 TO DATE - PER THE NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION ("NOAA") (28 December 2001) As has been mentioned, loss cost estimates can (and do) vary considerably. This is a subject to be further developed but by way of offering a basic introduction, it is interesting to note that the "NOAA" has issued a basic summary of (weather related natural disaster) events resulting in costs of US$1 billion and above - as occurring in the United States during the period 1980 to date. The "NOAA" are able to identify 49 individual events. With regard to loss value calculations, they comment that " these statistics were taken from a wide variety of sources and represent, to the best of our ability, the estimated total costs of these events ... that is, the costs in terms of dollars and lives that would not have been incurred had the event not taken place. Insured and uninsured losses are included in damage estimates ... economic costs are included for wide-scale, long-lasting events such as drought ".
