During the entire year of 2010 there was a total of 233 events or an average of 19.4 per month. Of those 233 incidents - 29 were due to high winds and small tornadoes, 75 landslides, 56 fires, 2 earthquakes, 32 floods, 35 heavy rainstorms resulting in property damage and 4 high waves. Natural disasters in Bali in 2010 were blamed for 7 deaths and 15 injuries.
