It’s true, but sadly most Americans can’t even pinpoint our own states on a map, so to get them to care about far off places and learn from their events can be a challenge.

But we have disasters in the US all the time. Parts of the West Coast just got flooded, Vancouver, Canada, was decimated by incredibly heavy rains and floods just a month or so ago, the southern states just had deadly tornadoes rip through, hurricanes are becoming the norm, wildfires galore, and the Texas ice storm are what standout in my mind from the last two years.
