Caribbean and Central American countries face a number of primary natural hazard risks, particularly earthquake and hurricane risks. Secondary risks such as those from flooding and landslides, storm surge and wave impacts, and tsunamis also pose significant threat. Additionally, these countries are frequently affected by extreme precipitation events that are often, but not always, induced by tropical cyclones.
