Our app is a survival app. Nature enthusiasts and people who are curious about specific natural disaster or in general will use this app. The app can serve as an educational tool or as entertainment. It will supply people with abridged, yet essential, knowledge about these disasters in a fun way. Regardless of how enthusiastic people are, surfing through the internet or flipping through endless pages in books will definitely be boring. An app
