Why does God allow such catastrophes like that of Burma and China disasters to happen? What is the rationale?

Update: This is something thats bothered me for a while now since tsunami years back. I feel im losing faith and i just cant understand why thousands would die like that
Update 2: Peter L- Well Hurricane Katrina, Tornadoes, LA Earthquake- USA, Earthquake in Mexico, etc etc, Floods in UK, etc
Update 3: pray4gui- thats a really nasty thing to say. Anyway, the UK hasnt had a huge deathtoll like the earthquake in Pakistan. They dont drink and we do but they died in 10s of thousands
