Earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, landslides, volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, forest fires, storms, and the list goes on. These are the natural disasters that make headlines once through often. Very often, it comes without sufficient warning. We are left powerless to protect ourselves against the violent, unpredictable moods of Mother Nature which can leave massive destruction along its unpredictable path.
What if there was a way to predict these disasters accurately? Science has certainly tried its best to do so.

Researchers have even at times tapped onto the sharp instinct of some animals as a source of disaster prediction.
