    Can we rename the title to "Extreme Weather"?

  • Not sure but maybe you are interested in: weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/2014/index.php It's only about hurricanes and unfortunately there are single files for each hurricane with LatLon data. So really accurate but not easily listable by country.

Addressing partly your question:

The NOAA has a Significant Earthquake database that can be downloaded in CSV format. The dataset also indicates if the earthquake event was linked to a tsunami.


Once again a partial answer...

The Dartmouth Flood Observatory (now housed at the University of Colorado instead of Dartmouth) maintains a list of large remotely sensed flood events going back to 1985 with countries. Download the excel sheet to see the full set.
