  2. Disasters often follow natural hazards. A disaster's severity
    depends on how much impact a hazard has on society and the

    environment. To reduce the damage caused by natural hazards like an earthquake humans can build durable buildings that will be able to withstand a earthquake.

  3. I think that's pretty good! You could maybe make it a bit more lengthier, but it's still pretty good even being a short answer. ^^
