Dec. 26, Bam, Iran: magnitude 6.6 earthquake devastated the ancient historic city of Bam in southeast Iran, killing 26,200 people, injured 30,000, and left 75,000 homeless, as mud-brick buildings collapsed.

2004, Dec. 26, Sumatra, Indonesia: magnitude 9.0 earthquake, off the west coast of Sumatra, caused a tremendously powerful tsunami in the Indian Ocean that hit 12 Asian countries, killing more than 225,000 and leaving millions homeless. It was the deadliest tsunami in history.

The same area was at the center of a huge tsunami in December that killed over 225,000 people. Officials at the U.S. Geological Survey said that yesterday's earthquake was an aftershock of December's 9.0 quake. The 9.0 magnitude earthquake was twice the power of the 8.7 magnitude quake. Oct. 8, Pakistan: magnitude 7.6 earthquake centered in the Pakistani-controlled part of the Kashmir region killed more than 80,000 and injured 65,000. About half of the region’s capital city, Muzaffarabad, has been destroyed, other towns and villages were flattened, and the extreme mountainous terrain and bad weather made many areas unreachable for weeks after the quake. An estimated 4 million were left homeless with winter on the way and insufficient resources to provide shelter.

2006, May 26, Java, Indonesia: (May 27 at 5:54 AM local time in Java, Indonesia). 6.3 magnitude earthquake killed 5,749 people and destroyed 127,000 homes. This area had also been under an intense volcano watch due to he ongoing eruption of the volcano Merapi
July 17, Java, Indonesia: an earthquake triggered a sunami, killing 730.

2007, March 6, Sumatra, Indonesia: (March 6 at 10:49 AM local time in Sumatra). Two earthquakes, magnitudes 6.4 and 6.3, killed at least 70 people in western Sumatra. Several hundred were injured, and more than 1,000 buildings collapsed. April 1, Honiara, Solomon Islands: (April 2 at 7:39 AM local time in Honiara, Solomon Islands). Magnitude 8.1 earthquake and ensuing tsunami left at least 34 dead and thousands homeless. The Solomon Islands are located in a part of the Pacific referred to as the "Ring of Fire" due to the frequency of volcanic activity and earthquakes in the region. July 16, Niigata, Japan: (July 16 at 10:13 AM local time in Niigata, Japan) 6.8 magnitude earthquake left at least 11 dead and injured more than 900. The tremor caused skyscrapers in Tokyo to sway for almost a minute, and buckled roads and bridges. Earthquake damage was also (belatedly) reported at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant, which was eventually shut down until its safety could be confirmed. Aug. 15, coast of central Peru: (Aug. 15 at 6:40 PM local time in Chincha Alta, Peru) At least 337 are reported dead after a 8.0-magnitude earthquake strikes coastal cities near Lima, Peru.

I have entered the earthquakes, tsunami tidal waves and volcanic eruptions just from 1985, to give you an idea of the following.

Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (KJV) See: Matthew Chapter 24.

Indian Ocean Tsunami: The Deadliest in History

On Dec. 26, 2004, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake—the largest earthquake in 40 years—ruptured in the Indian Ocean, off the northwest coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The earthquake triggered the deadliest tsunami in world history, so powerful that the waves caused loss of life on the coast of Africa and were even detected on the East Coast of the United States. More than 225,000 people have died from the disaster, a half a million have been injured, thousands still remain missing, and millions were left homeless.
Eleven countries bordering the Indian Ocean—all relatively poor and vulnerable—suffered devastation. Hardest hit were Indonesia (particularly the province of Aceh), Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and the Maldives. The catastrophic damage included the destruction of entire cities, the contamination of farmland and forests, and the depletion of fishing stocks. Some areas faced starvation and increased suseptibility to disease. Even countries with relatively low death tolls suffered enormous damage—the Maldives, for example, had less than 100 deaths, yet the tsunami left 14 of the archipelago's islands uninhabitable, requiring its inhabitants to be permanently evacuated, and another 79 islands without safe drinking water.
