While not technically a "natural disaster", this "weird" story may qualify as a "cultural disaster". I wonder if stupid things really happen after TAR visits a location. link to 'weird' story about Tbilisi, Georgia
Edited to add: Wow! did a quick check and found that the Kiwi Cafe ('ground zero') was possibly in the path of the racers. Given a different time and date, they could have been hit by a stray 'kaputi, 'bratwurst', 'salami', 'kielbasa', or heaven forbid, a 'haggis'.
