Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on 29 Dec 2011 - From tsunamis to tornadoes, from droughts to floods, 2011 was a particularly nasty year for natural disasters.
While some parts of the globe were flooded by water, other parts were in dire need.
Across the Horn of Africa, twelve million people were affected by the severe drought, which still grips the region, while many parts of the world were swept away by heavy downpour.
As the year is coming to an end, the weather struck once more. Tropical Storm Washi hit the Philippines, killing more than 1,000 people.
And with the La Nina conditions still present, 2012 is promising to start just where 2011 left off.
