What on Earth!

Can someone explain to me why we are continuously getting such catastrophic natural disasters from two diametrically opposide sides of the world?

It's almost like one is yelling to the other: "It's your turn!"

First the Tsunami.
Then Katrina and Rita.
Then the earthquake of Pakistan.
Now, a hurricane named Wilma is Catagory 5!

It's like the Indian subcontinent and the Gulf of Mexico are playing out a game.
And lives, especially at the end I post from, are apparently worth peanuts in this game.

NB: The latest I heard is that the death toll has crossed 79000!
This is one of the deadliest earthquakes of modern times!!
