I disagree with the tie it seems between judgement and things that happen in nature. That somehow sin is the cause of bad things happening to people. I guess being from New Orleans makes me have a different perspective.
Repent or Perish
1Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2Jesus answered, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
Here it seems Jesus is saying there isn't any relationship with what happened to those people and their sins.
1) It rains (literally) on the just and the unjust.
2) Nothing "just happens" God is absolutely sovreign over His creation.
3) When you are a child of God, nothing happens to you, good or bad, before it is sifted through the velvet fingers of the iron hand of God.
I think most natural disasters are a result of the fall of man.
