    Hello Sexytamara,

    I would try to explain you "act of God":

    It is a natural and unavoidable catastrophe that interrupts the expected course of events.

    Some examples of an "act of God" are: an earthquake, a vulcanic eruption, a hurricane and so on.

    I hope that this could help you :)


    Kind regards,
    Dany :D
