Act of God 

A "massive, unavoidable event wholly caused by forces of nature, such as an earthquake, flood, or tornado" is what is meant by an act of God, or Vis Major in Latin. Any party to a case who want to absolve themselves of responsibility for any incident typically invokes the defence by pointing to a natural catastrophe. The defence is based on the tort law or civil law idea that one cannot be found accountable when an Act of Nature is to blame and all reasonable precautions have been taken.
