Recent events such as hurricanes, storms, earthquakes, droughts, and wildfires have been affecting our world for years. Natural disasters are natural events that happen in all different parts of the world that cause great damage or loss of life. In this report researchers have collected data amongst 10 countries to compare the United States to other 9 countries on how well there preparedness influences their recovery. If the countries are prepared for a natural disaster then they will have a better chance of recovery. The researchers started looking to find results that give researchers a better perspective of how well the United States prepares for natural disasters and how well they recover. Researchers used Data mining to compare the countries preparedness and recovery. Finally, researchers will present some trends that will reinforce the way United States prepare for natural disasters.
