United States natural disasters
This page aims to provide a place for coordinating information on the relation between natural disasters in the United States and places (represented by place names) therein. This is not formally a part of either WikiProject United States or Humanitarian Open Street Map but rather an outgrowth of the observation that there is not a good place to hold information about natural disasters in the United States which affect multiple states. It would be anticipated that those events impacting only (or predominately) a single state would appear in closer association to that state.
Tornadoes tend to render damage over either single or multiple small land areas.
