"A disaster is an accidental or uncontrollable threat, concentrated in time and space, in which a society, or a relatively self-sufficient subdivision of society, undergoes severe danger, and incurs such losses to its members and physical appurtenance that the social structure is disrupted and the fulfillment of all or some of the essential functions of the society is prevented." (Charles Fritz)
