The advantages:
We learn how to better prepare ourselves for future disasters
We find out what kind of social problems we have (like with Katrina - were the people treated with less urgency who were African American? And how hard was it for economically disadvantaged to get out of danger?)
We learn how to better respond to future problems
They bring communities together
They remind us that we're not in charge of nature
The Disadvantages:
People die and/or suffer (physically, emotionally, spiritually)
Things get ruined (homes, buildings, crops, economies)
These things can be expensive to repair
Animals (nonhuman) get harmed, killed, or displaced
People become lost from their family members

    Well, think about it! You ought to be able to come up with all the bad things on your own pretty fast if you have opposable thumbs.

    How could flooding be beneficial? Agriculture started on the flood plain between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, didn't it?

    Relax and think about what could be good about a volcano? Massive brush fire? An earthquake? Hurricane? Tsunami? Tornado?
