Panic on external HD disconnection

Today I was taking a backup to an external UFS HD when I accidentally 
touched the cable and it sort of unplugged.

The whole system got a panic.

While I understand this falls either into hardware or "stupid user" 
category of panics, is a whole crash normal?
Or should I expect better resilience, like fail that filesytem, spit a 
whole bunch of offenses at me, but keep the on working with the rest, 
and look for something wrong on my setup?

  bye & Thanks
