Examples: Types of natural hazards relevant to the  DesignSafe  community are: earthquake, landslide, flood, tsunami, hurricane and tornado.

Note that the Environment Ontology has a subset of natural hazards that it maintains for the UN SDGIO: http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/envo/subsets/environmental_hazards.owl [OWL]
http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/envo/subsets/environmental_hazards.json [JSON]

A simple table version of all our subsets can be found here:

You can find the hazards by grepping for the "environmental_hazards" tag in the ?subset column.
