A natural hazard is a potentially damaging process or phenomenon that occurs, or has the potential to occur, in nature. A natural hazard, such as the earthquake (seismic) hazard on Vancouver Island, exists even when no earthquake has actually occurred. When an earthquake happens, it is termed an event.

Examples of natural hazards are earthquakes, forest fires, landslides, volcanos, tsunamis.
