    Question Which of the sentences is right?

    Flood, hurricane, tornado and earthquake are natural disasters.

    Floods, hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes are natural disasters.

    Which of the two sentences is more acceptable in terms of grammar? Thanks for helping!

    The latter is the one we use.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
