Environmental aspects and impacts

I need help to formulate the environmental aspects of the flooding, earthquake. For all the emergency situation as an environmental aspects I wrote "waste generation" and for the environmental impacts "pollution of the sol, water, pollution with waste, influence of the flora and fauna". For the fire another environmental aspects is "heat generation"
For the fire as aspect I wrote "water consummation" and for the environmental impacts "resource consumption" and "gas emission" with impact "air pollution". Am I right? Do I miss something?

Answer:

For fire events of the main vectors for environmental aspects are runoff waters. Those waters are normally heavily contaminated. Environmental aspects in that case are soil contamination and water pollution with environmental impacts around influence on the flora and fauna, and even on communities. There are several cases of runoff waters contaminating underground water table used in important public drinking water source.

Considering the article mentioned above, about the use of terminology: water consumption, resource consumption, gas emissions, are all environmental aspects. Impacts are about the consequences, like attack on the ozone layer, or promoting greenhouse effect.
