Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the worst, harshest weather in the world from their list.

The first one is China. China is one of the largest countries in the world and an emerging superpower. However, China does face the obstacle of harsh weather condition. China frequently suffers from flooding and various other natural calamities. The countries weather condition varies greatly from region to region since the country is so huge. In 2016, about 989 people lost their lives because of various natural calamities in China. The second country should be The United States. It is quite unfortunate, but at number 10 we have the United States of America. Well, we really do not have to tell you why that is. As a citizen of the United States, you are already aware how awful the weather conditions can get in certain locations in the US. And the loss of life and property is also rather severe. At last, but not least we are mentioning Bolivia. In Bolivia, some parts of the country may experience excessive rain and flood, while the other parts may experience drought. Weather conditions are quite extreme in this Latin American country. Although a loss of life is not that high in Bolivia due to harsh weather, the loss of property surely is high enough to put Bolivia within the top 10 countries with the worst, harshest weather in the world.
