yes any natural disaster can cause poverty, but i think we are looking at how it compares to normal social poverty between the wealth of a country and how it is distributed

How many tornadoes of F3 or larger have you had in Europe lately?
How many Hurricanes of Cat 3 or  ...

why so butthurt?
I dunno, just checked again and found again that what's called a tornado here is translated hurricane to american english, and I recently experienced one of those.
As for classifications of hurricanes/tornados/twisters/whatever, they're irrelevant to life here, so why should I have informed myself about them. I just heard that alaskan statement that the stuff panicked about in the south was just daily business up north.
If that's wrong you're free to prove me better and I can just check that stuff on wiki or wherever.

If you want to see what poor people look like, they look like you. The person on the corner selling flowers, the maid in a hotel, the construction worker, the man sweeping the streets, then just out side the city,,,in the country, there are  peasants, working in the fields, doing what they can to survive. These people and many more ; take a good look . Nice pictures but what do they mean..????

Forgot to mention the unemployed university and college students who can not find a job in CHINA. These people are dirt poor.

Poverty begins before people become homeless and look for food in the garbage, It begins when they have just enough money to still feed themselves a little and a place to live. The US has millions of homeless people and they are considered to be living in deep poverty. The unofficial unemployment rate is above 20% and graduating college students have little hope of finding a job.
What's on your mind...
