They don't have the time to prepare for any natural hazards, unlike the more economically developed countries. They have a low amount of people in their population, and so aren't as worried as they would be if they had more. They can't afford to pay prevention costs and repair damages after it hits, as they are a less economically developed country. They refuse to ask for help from MEDCs because they don't like being in debt to other countries as they are already poor enough.
