From the game guide:

  • Earthquakes greatly reduce the effectiveness of hospitals in the region.
  • Floods temporarily boost exposure to your disease if your disease is able to spread via water.
  • Hurricanes temporarily close airports due to high winds. Also temporarily closes schools and transit.
  • Droughts increase insect population, and boosts exposure to your disease if it is spreadable by insects.
  • Riots negate the effects of curfews.

So to take advantage of these:
1) If a lot of locations are being flooded, and your disease isn't waterbourne, buy that.
2) If a lot of locations are experiencing droughts, make your disease spreadable through insects.
There's not any way to take advantage of the other afflictions.
