1856 Mount Awu
Mount Awu (Indonesian: Gunung Awu) is the largest volcano in the Sangihe chain, located in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Powerful eruptions occurred in 1711, 1812, 1856, 1892 and 1966 with devastating pyroclastic flows and lahars that have resulted in more than 8,000 fatalities altogether. A 4.5 km wide crater is found at the summit and a deep valley forms a passageway for lahars, splitting the flanks from the crater. This is a volcano in the Ring of Fire.Source: Wikipedia

The 1938 Yellow River flood (Chinese: 花園口決隄事件, literally 'Huayuankou embankment breach incident') was a flood created by the Nationalist Government in central China during the early stage of the Second Sino-Japanese War in an attempt to halt the rapid advance of Japanese forces. It has been called the 'largest act of environmental warfare in history' and an example of scorched earth military strategy.Source: Wikipedia
