1907 Chinese famine
The Chinese famine of 1907 was a crisis in northern China. The famine was triggered by heavy rains over the 1906 growing season.Bill Kte'pi estimated that 10 percent of the population of northern Jiangsu and parts of central China may have died, and put the death toll as possibly being as high as 25 million people, which would make it is the second-worst famine in recorded history. The Argus, a contemporary Australian newspaper, likewise reported on 22 February 1907 that '[t]en millions of Chinese were suffering' and that half would die without food aid.On 26 June 1907, The Argus reported that the crisis was at an end.Source: Wikipedia
1963 Mount Agung
Mount Agung (Indonesian: Gunung Agung; Balinese: ᬕᬸᬦᬸᬂ ᬆᬕᬸᬂ) is an active volcano in Bali, Indonesia, southeast of Mount Batur volcano, also in Bali. It is the highest point on Bali, and dominates the surrounding area, influencing the climate, especially rainfall patterns. From a distance, the mountain appears to be perfectly conical. From the peak of the mountain, it is possible to see the peak of Mount Rinjani on the nearby island of Lombok, to the east, although both mountains are frequently covered in clouds. Agung is a stratovolcano, with a large and deep crater. Its most recent eruptions occurred from 2017–2019.Source: Wikipedia
