Cities Skylines 2 adds a new level of realism, and the game has a lot of content, including natural disasters, that you need to account for and prepare for. To build a thriving city, you need to take care of the safety and livelihood of your citizens. In this Cities Skylines 2 guide, I go over all the natural disasters in the game and how you can prepare for them.


All Natural Disasters In Cities Skylines 2

There are three main natural disasters that can occur in your city. The following is what you need to know about each of them.

  • Tornadoes
  • Hailstorms
  • Forest Fires


Tornadoes are one of the most devastating natural disasters that can occur in City Skylines 2, and you cannot really prevent them from happening. You can prepare for them by having underground emergency shelters built for your citizens to help them survive. When a tornado hits your city, you people can head into the underground shelters and wait them out. There will be damage to your infrastructure and other environmental elements such as cars.


Just like tornadoes, there isn’t much that you can do to prevent hailstorms. Hail can freeze roads, which leads to increased traffic accidents. As long as citizens are at home or have shelter, they should be fine.

Forest Fires

Forest Fires not only spread across forests but can reach your city and burn down buildings and homes. To prevent first fires and avoid any potential damage, you need to build Fire Watch Towers along the outskirts of your city. You also need to build Firefighting Departments close to them so that they can reach the fires and put them out before they get out of control.
