This book conducts a systematic inquiry into the tragic deaths caused by natural disasters at different geographic scales. It employs key disaster concepts and classification of disasters to understand the high mortality rates and the various factors associated with these deaths. Deaths are the direct and immediate impact of disaster events, which have remained a major concern for disaster managers and policy-makers all over the world. Using primary research and secondary data, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of various facets of disaster deaths such as trends, circumstances and causes, and determinants at global, regional, national, and subnational scales. It offers a holistic perspective on disaster mortality, which has been lacking for some time. The book not only fills this research gap but also suggests important policy implications for disaster managers and policy makers working in multilateral, bilateral, local, and international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). These policies include effective strategies to significantly reduce the risk of deaths caused by natural disasters, which are explored through chapters written in a clear and accessible style. Drawing together the case studies on past major disasters as well as recent ones, the book provides new and critical insights into deaths precipitated by natural disasters. Suitable for both technical and nontechnical readers, the book has a broader appeal and will thus be useful for practitioners, researchers, students, as well as activists in the area of hazards and disasters who are interested in studying mortality due to extreme natural events.

Survivors of the Joplin, Missouri tornado tell many stories in this book: of running for their lives, children torn from their mothers' arms, and being swept into the funnel of the hellish EF-5 tornado that on May 22, 2011, killed 158 people. In the wreckage of the nearby hospital, doctors and nurses worked by flashlight to save lives. Yet the historic tornado has another story, untold until now. Young survivors of the wrath of this monster storm, none over the age of twelve, began telling parents and teachers about the bright winged beings – or "butterfly people" – who shielded them as the massive tornado passed over them. Could it be that when the devil came to Joplin, the angels came too?
