Snake, Bee, or other Venomous Bite or Sting (1-in-100,000)
According to some estimates, you’re almost twice as likely to die of a bee sting than a dog bite. Every year in the US, around 50 people die of allergic reactions to venom. That just goes to show you that even tiny things can pack a punch.
Lightning Strike (1-in-83,930)
Each year around the world, about a quarter of a million people are struck by lightning (and they have some crazy stories to show for it) with about 10% of the strikes being fatal. Contrary to popular belief, you can still be struck even in a shed or makeshift shelter, and every once in a while, lightning can contribute to your risk of dying from #14.
If you live in the United States or Eastern India, then your chances of dying in a swirling mess of debris are high compared to the rest of the world. While 2017 was a better than average year for tornado deaths, you never know when another tornado is right around the corner.

Although most of the world has abolished the death penalty, if you live in China, North Korea, Yemen, Iran, or the United States, your chances of being legally executed skyrocket as these 5 countries still make good use of capital punishment.
As one of the most common and dangerous natural disasters, floods claim more lives annually than any other of the natural catastrophes on our list. 2017 was an especially deadly year, with thousands of deaths due to hurricanes and intense rain.
