We see the destruction that the Earth can unleash in the news on a regular basis. Here you can learn about hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other forces of nature.
Thanks in part to strict building codes, damage from the November 7.0 earthquake was relatively minimal.
This ice-age asteroid crater isn't just the first of its kind. It may also be the smoking gun about what triggered the Younger Dryas, one of the most well-known examples of abrupt climate change.
Ice cubes usually look cloudy and opaque in the middle, despite the fact that water is clear. What's the deal?
Noctilucent clouds form at high altitudes when drifting particles become coated with ice crystals at low temperatures.
Most people probably think high winds are the deadliest aspect of a hurricane. But they'd be wrong. It's the wall of water brought on by storm surge that barrels on shore taking out everything in its path.
From hurricanes, to earthquakes, to tornadoes, there's no shortage of potential disasters that can ruin homes and devastate lives. Think you’re ready to survive the next disaster? Take this quiz and find out.
When Mother Nature is at her worst, the state and federal governments often step in to protect U.S. citizens. But moving masses of people away from the coast isn't an easy feat.
It's sometimes easy to confuse the two, but weather and climate are very different things.
Even though Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a Category 2, the storm could still unleash an historic amount of rain.
Hurricane Hector is barreling toward the erupting volcano Kilauea. What could possibly be worse?
The Carr fire in Northern California is currently the sixth-largest in the state's history. How did it get so out of control?
Or do we just stick with the five categories we already have?
Scorching-high temps seem to be the norm this summer. So what does this kind of heat do to your body?
A fire can burn for years, yes years, in a swamp. What's the deal?
Both dry and over-saturated soil can contribute to flash flooding. Can anything be done to prevent them from becoming catastrophic?
Tsunamis are triggered by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions on the ocean's floor. But other massive waves are caused by wind and can come on suddenly and without warning.
The evidence is clear: Human activities — like the burning of fossil fuels — are the main driving force behind modern climate change.
We hear about humidity in just about every weather report on the nightly news. There are several different ways meteorologists measure humidity, but relative humidity is the most common measurement. What is relative humidity, though?
To date 14 massive fissures have opened up near Kilauea, and the Big Island has been rocked by repeated earthquakes. Do these geological events foreshadow a massive volcanic eruption?
We may not be able to hear infrasound, but we sure can use it to detect tornadoes.
The mercury soared to over 122 degrees Fahrenheit in Nawkwabash, Pakistan. It could be the highest April temp ever recorded on the planet.
Scientists across the globe attempt to forecast upcoming hurricane seasons in the Atlantic. But how — and are they right?
Volcanic eruptions are loud. Very loud. But nobody's ever been able to capture the roar of the thunder they create. Until now.
The danger to the iconic statues is now greater than ever due to erosion and higher-energy wave action caused by climate change.
Red snow? Yes. It totally exists. And while it might look cool, it's not exactly what you want to see from Mother Nature.
