Natural disasters in India, many of them related to the climate of India, cause massive losses of Indian life and property. Droughts, flash floods, cyclones, avalanches, landslides brought on by torrential rains, and snowstorms pose the greatest threats. Other dangers include frequent summer dust storms, which usually track from north to south; they cause extensive property damage in North India and deposit large amounts of dust from arid regions. Hail is also common in parts of India, causing severe damage to standing crops such as rice and wheat.
Earthquakes occur in India every year, and some loss of life is common every year. Some major quakes in India (with death toll) include 1905 (19,000), 1934 (11,000), 1935 (50,000), 1950 (1500), 1991 (2,000), 1993 (30,000), 2001 (20,000).
