If the Somerset County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan has you wondering about what types of disasters may befall our county, I suggest you check out Doris and Stuart Flexner's newly updated The Pessimist's Guide to History.
The Pessimist's Guide is a chronological look at world disasters, catastrophes, massacres, etc ranging from air crashes to volcanic eruptions - and including every bizarre or devastating event in between.
Assassinations, avalanches, earthquakes, bloody rebellions - it's all here.
And you thought we had it rough because it takes 20 minutes to get to the mall at rush hour. Ha Ha!
