Notice that the context of the verse is dealing with who God is and that it is God who speaks of natural phenomena (sun, light, dark) and that it is God who is able to cause "well-being" as well as "calamity." Contextually, this verse is dealing with natural disasters and human comfort issues. It is not speaking of moral evil. Rather, it is dealing with calamity, distress, etc.

I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.
יוצר אור ובורא
חשך עשה שלום
ובורא רע אני יהוה
