On the one hand it could be pay back for the destruction humans are doing to nature.
On the other maybe some natural "disasters" happen because it's a living planet and would happen anyway without humans being here.
But the reason why we think it's so terrible and devastating is because there are populations there with structures and other stuff.
If there was nobody there, cars, buildings etc. then it wouldn't be bad at all.
We never hear when things like this happen to non-populated islands.
We have way too many people on the planet and it does need a natural cleansing every so often.
