Environmental Disasters & Exposures
Environmental disasters are frightening for everyone, largely because they are out of our control and they bring personal disasters to our home, property and health. Environmental disasters can be natural, but are often caused by a company failing to use correct pollution controls or failing to use effective procedures to ensure safety, causing a large-scale accident that greatly affects the environment surrounding them.
If you are in an area that was affected by an environmental disaster, such as an oil spill or nuclear meltdown, you are likely going to feel its’ effects. Citizens who are exposed to the disaster will likely develop health problems due to the toxins, and the areas affected will likely lose revenue and resources, causing major economic damage.
