It's a crazy sight to see that much earth moving all at the same time. And those houses just plop into the water like nothing. The guy who filmed this, Jan Egil Bakkedal, who owned one of those houses, said that he ran for it when he realized what was happening.

The Chernobyl Wildfires Are 2020's Latest Little 'Surprise'

In case anyone was still waiting for an April disaster to happen, perhaps this is it! 

For anyone not yet in the know, forest fires began burning on April 4th in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine. The fires came dangerously close to the site of the infamous Chernobyl disaster of 1986, and have released radioactive contamination into the air. The good news is that the fires have been contained, although the area has since been deemed the most polluted in the world. 

What else could go wrong in 2020!

Earthquakes are arguably the most terrifying of all the natural disasters due to their unexpected nature - unlike tornadoes or hurricanes, it's nearly impossible to plan for an earthquake or know when one is about to strike. This particular earthquake, which occurred in Japan in 2011, was followed by a tsunami and the infamous Fukushima reactor meltdowns. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan.

And of course, we gotta give props to the brave person who filmed the whole terrifying event from an airport!

The White Island Volcano Eruption

The White Island Volcano, off of the coast of New Zealand, known as Whakaari, erupted on Monday December 9th. The tourism hotspot had a number of boats and tourists in the area, and unfortunately around 50 people were on the island at the time of the explosion. So far authorities confirmed 6 dead and 29 in intensive care with burns ranging from 40 to 95%. Rescue efforts are stymied as the volcano has shown signs that another eruption is imminent, and there a number of people still missing.  

Hospitals have ordered 1.2 million square kilometers of skin in order to make sure to have enough to treat the patients, and any additional patients that may be discovered. These are some glimpses of the explosion and aftermath.
