    It's another example of how powerless we are, even today, against the forces of nature. Yes, technology makes us better at predicting severe weather, earthquakes, solar flares, volcanic eruptions - and yet the power of these natural events is so immense they change conditions on Earth with a rapidity and ferocity that makes man-made structures and efforts to shape our world look puny by comparison.
