These real-time visualizations on a world map are both terrifying and fascinating.

The various icons on the map illustrate natural disasters and accidents – everything including floods, earthquakes, forest fires, volcanoes, airplane accidents, terror attacks, etc. – that are happening in various parts of the world right now.

You can click an icon image to get detailed information and the exact co-ordinates (latitude, longitude) where that emergency situation is happening. The data is sourced from several certified organizations and internet press publications containing pre-defined keywords.

Thanks @hc for the tip.
