Children:
* Earthquakes

* Natural disaster - in case the depicted events are caused by one.
Mainly cases where this actually affects gameplay beyond creating some nice scenic views of disaster zones.

The actual cause of the disaster shouldn't be considered, allowing things like evil geniuses and their doomsday devices as well as mad wizards and their spells of armageddon.

Oddly in games these aren't usually very memorable, very much unlike their realworld counterparts which are often quite traumatic.
