ffutures posted a link to THIS SITE. It records various disasters taking place around the world in the recent days and portrays them on a map. Each has a link to a page with furher information about what is happening (plus some Google Earth maps and also one regarding a flood had a very useful before and after satellite image of the area).
Thought I'd share as I thought it was a really useful site and have already bookmarked it myself.
EDIT 1: I think I'm going to move to South America. It seems the only continent that hasn't had anything really bad happen in the last few days...
EDIT 2: WOW! Angus just scrolled down from the map and has found tons of additional information!!!! This site is a goldmine!!!
