    Situational crisis is something that is a crisis to an individual such as death, divorce, rape and so on. An earthquake, though a crisis, is not considered a situational crisis. It involves many people. I don't think I'm doing the best at explaining this..but just to get you thinking on the right track.

    Disasters are considered an adventitious crisis. That would include earthquakes, i believe.
