Many of the worst natural disasters of 2011 were also the most severe the affected countries had ever experienced. Brazil, Cambodia, El Salvador, Laos and Thailand appear in the CRI’s 10 most-affected countries; all recorded their severest natural hazards-related catastrophes in 2011. For the period 1992 to 2011, Honduras, Myanmar and Nicaragua rank highest.
