Disaster and hazards research has raised questions about the extremely complex relationship between causality and responsibility for disaster consequences of both natural and technological hazard agents. Differences in individual perception of and response to threats from natural versus technological hazards have been extensively debated (cf, Baum et al. 1983; Kroll-Smith and Couch 1990) as has the similarity of collective and organizational response to natural and technological disasters (Quarantelli and Dynes 1976).
