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.

Tropical storms

Tropical storms tend to render damage over a broad land area both from high winds and flooding.
