Oh you mean on Earth?
Earthquakes that cause tsunamis.


still wrong the worse would have to another galaxy colliding into ours




EDIT
====

an earth it would have to be Global super acidic rain that slowly melts everything including skin, muscle, flesh and all this has been recorded and happened once in early human history


Yellowstone national park erupting (super volcano) which there has been major recent earthquake activity there and its not a good sign

every volcano erupting in the ring of fire at once ~~~ both will change the landscape of the world and cover the world in ASH killing all vegetation and killing off the food chain and making it difficult to walk cause certain types of ash can be sharper than broken glass and making harder to breath

a meteorite striking the earth ocean thats bigger than 500 meters long ~~~ this is on earth event study the terminology of meteorite then you will see why


Diseases, viruses, parasites, fungus's, bacteria, Cancer, Mutations, Genetics, STD's new ones pop up everyday (as expected and there is a fungus that can infect the brain and literally make you attack and eat everything that moves) though every one has a natural resistance to it except those that live in tribes in deep inside heavy forest ~~~ we always have to worry about epidemics and pandemic and plagues you will never know when that game plague inc might turn into reality


the new Madrid fault line that straight in the middle of the US in the Midwest ~~~ it has been documented but not recorded how powerful it was it is estimated to be as powerful as anywhere from 8.7+ ~ it cause a lake to drain and a river to flow backwards for weeks and after shocks were felt for several years that may have ranged from 5 to 8.0s until they weekend enough to die down ~~~ its said to erupt everyone 200 years and the last recorded time was 1812

our magnet poles are said to be weakening or about to reverse itself north will become the new south and south will become the new west ~~the damage would be slow but definitely felt ~~ mars was said to have water once but then its magnetic field went to shit and the suns rays destroyed its ozone layer

then theirs always the possibility of another ice age but its highly doubtful nobody knows how exactly that started or if it even happened watch the movie "Day After Tomorrow" it will hypothetically describe a modern day ice age storm hitting

Serbia is said to have enough frozen methane to turn the earth into a comparable star if melted then ignited

i don't remember what island but there's and island around Africa that is split in half and about to fall into the ocean that will cause a tsunami estimate to be at least 2 miles tall or possibly more that could hit south america in just a few minutes and in the way of over several million people

humans is a product of nature too so you always have to worry about human problems too War nuclear or not, biochemical attacks, and etc

wild fires can be a problem too they are as dangerous since out of all they are the most slow moving when detected after it happens, but they can be ='ly terrifying if not contained or controlled

floods too are the same way

Hurricanes, typhoons, and tropical storms wildly unpredictable they can drop pounds of rain at once with EXTREME WIND speed and it might have a chance to rain down SHARKS


Sharknadoes and Tornadoes pretty self explanatory

THE LIST CAN GO ON FOREVER REALLY AND GROWS WITH EVERY DAY AND CENTURY AND MILLENNIUM

i edited my post with additional info feel free to have a look

EDIT

also then theirs always those one hit wonder like neutron stars which can endlessly travel in one direction supposedly faster than light speed rotating at speeds that help increase gravity more powerful than a black hole

and

then if something powerful enough was to come close by and knock us out of orbit or ignite Jupiter into an actual star

or

the sun randomly going or giving off a nova or supernova or a HYPER NOVA or a MEGA NOVA

Yikes!


I wonder about a hypercane though.

I live in the west coast... so the 'big earthquake' that everyone's been saying will happen kinda scares me.

I'll keep it within the realm of possibility on Earth itself and won't count something stupid that people will directly do.

1. Seismic activity (giant tremor, supervolcano, giant sinkhole, etc.) - Stuff falls over, critical buildings are damaged/destroyed, people can't fend for themselves in the event of no utilities like they used to be able to. Mass panic, fires, food and water shortages, general bedlam, diseases spread from rotting bodies, etc. This can happen literally anywhere, on a whim from Nature. There is no predicting and no real preparing. They also can be combined with any disaster below.

2. New strain of lethal and fast-mutating virus (like an advanced version of the Mayinga strain of ebolavirus, which has a 9/10 mortality rate) - The only reason this isn't #1 is because people will isolate it fast and attempt to keep it away from populated areas. They'll sever a limb to save the body. However, it's good to remember that a lethal virus is always less than 24 hours away from any major city on our planet. You can pick up a hot agent and travel to Tokyo or Los Angeles or New York or Beijing before the symptoms even develop. By then, if it is airborne, you may infect others in the plane cabin and people in the airport and in the actual cities, who will then travel to other places. If it mutates fast, stuff only gets more scary. It becomes harder to come up with a vaccine or treatment.

3. Hurricane/supertornado - These can deal legendary amounts of damage to any major city. A big one can sweep smaller buildings off their foundations and having huge pieces of debris being thrown about is sure to be damaging to even the biggest structure. A really strong tornado may have winds well over 200 MPH and a large hurricane can be several hundred miles in diameter, changing the very landscape into a death zone. People aren't even able to come out and run like they can in other disasters. The instant you go out the door, you get carried away by wind or hit with flying objects at lethal velocities. If you're in a weak building, you're already dead. Fortunately, scientists are pretty good at predicting these.

4. Flood/tsunami - These are easily predicted. They are destructive, to be sure, but more predictable than tremors or unknown viruses or wind patterns. The area may be uninhabitable for some time, and prone to future flooding as well. You'll almost assuredly be unable to salvage anything from your home if it is destroyed by the same waters that carry objects everywhere like in a huge blender. Objects in moving water can also make it impossible to swim to safety and even water that appears to move slowly is capable of carrying a person off to his/her death. Humans are weaker swimmers than they think they are and water doesn't f*** around. The good thing is if you have no large bodies of water near where you live, this won't happen unless there's a gigantic rainstorm but those can be predicted.

massive meteor impact


it wiped 98% of genera on Earth which included the wonderful dinosaurs... (genera is like a fancy word for different types of organisms... it's a bit higher up than species). and who knows how many other amazing animals were killed in that meteor... my god.



but in a way, that meteor paved the way for mammals to become predominant on Earth... what was known as the Age of Dinosaurs... now becomes the Age of Humans.

I remember reading a theory about how the dinosaurs went extinct. Basically a meteor hits the earth in such a way as to throw dust and debris into the atmosphere, which blocks out the sun. Then supposedly, that would cause an ice age. If we're excluding meteors as natural, then I guess one a them super volcano's would do the trick, with or without the ice age.

Kids are the most destructive natural disaster. Don't kid yourself; a child is not a blessing or the best thing to happen to a person in their life. Anyone who believes this is just lying to themselves and can't come to terms to admit that their life was ruined.

On the topic of galaxies colliding, Andromeda is on a collision course with our Milky Way. The two will start to merge some billions of years from now, and will take millions more for the merge to finalize. Galaxies merging happen all the time (there is one still in the process of a dwarf galaxy and our own Milky Way), and it's not the car wreck that you may believe it to be, seeing as how the solar bodies within the galaxy can have distances between each other measured in light years.

We of course will never see it happen. Life on Earth will have long been extinguished before it ever happens. So no worries about the merge ever affecting your offspring and future generations. Earth will be just another dead planet devoid of life.
