Multi-Hazard Scenarios

In the context of PacSAFE a hazard is any natural or human caused event or series of events that may negatively impact the population, infrastructure or resources in an area. Some examples of natural hazards implemented: a flood, an earthquake and the resulting ground shaking that is produced by it, a volcano and the resulting lava flow from a volcano, ash fall from a volcano, a tsunami, and tropical cyclones.
