The weather is something to be amazed by, if you are not then that may mean that you are not connected to nature, because the weather is part of nature.
Extreme weather is a way for us humans to recognize the power of to respect and fear the power of The Creator, The Most High YAHWEH; if we don’t we could surely lose our lives out there in the wilderness.
In today’s article, we are going to talk about extreme weather
Mother nature constantly brings to our doors extreme weather, almost daily.
Alright so snow is very fun for many people with a since of humor, children are very happy when there is a snow storm, because they know that they don’t have to go to school that day and instead can play in the snow all the day long.
Some people are also adults playing in the snow, and some other people are rather sad because they have to shovel the snow and clean their cars.
Some not very lucky people though also experience the snow in a very different way, because they go through some very devastating events that change their lives forever.
Mother nature can and will become hostile
My fellow readers, if you love to play in the snow, do it quickly and have some respect for the snow. Because mother nature can and will become hostile if you don’t learn to pay attention to the signs or when The Creator is trying to talk to you.
Sometimes with snow people don’t lose their lives while the snow storm is happening, but rather people lose their lives when they start playing games in the snow, such game is snow tubing, which can be very dangerous for many people.
Snow storm can also cause many accidents, because the roads for many car drivers can become dangerous due to the ice and the snow that would be accumulated in the ground, when a snow storm makes landfall.
Negative effects on your city
Snow storms can and will have negative effects on your city, because when the snow falls then the government may or may not work during that day, causing a government shutdown.
Snow storms can be lethal if you don’t learn to respect them and stay away from their rage, so we need to know how to snow storms form and what they can do to people.
Warm air and moisture
Snow storms form because temperatures drop below freezing levels, and clouds forming the precipitation due to the warm air and moisture that is present in the air, from the oceans nearby.
Cold polar and warm tropical air masses are sufficient enough to form snow storms that can have devastating effects on a community.
The snow storms are difficult to predict, sometimes because the temperatures have to drop dramatically for snow to be able to form, come down to earth and actually not melt when it is on the ground.
Shovel the snow or play on the snow
Once the snow storm hits a community though, then you know what is next after the snow falls, either you have to shovel the snow or play on the snow and make snow angels or a snow man.
Snow storms can have economic loss and personal tragedy when there are days of heavy snow and blizzards.
The icy weather can be extreme and devastating because it can come to a city in other forms such as ice storms, thunder-snow, and freezing rain.
All these forms of precipitation can and will put a city under emergency
You also have to be careful when you are in the middle of a weather that is below-freezing because you may suffer from froze-bite, which is a condition of the skin that happens due to the fact that you were exposed to the cold for a little too long.
We also have to remember avalanche, which are formed from heavy masses of snow moving down a mountain that has a very steep slope.
If you are by a mountain that has a lot of snow, then you need to calculate the slop of the mountain and you need to also know the type of snow that is on that mountain and run if you see a big piece of that snow breaking from the mountain, because an avalanche is coming your way and may end your life.
Avalanches are very rapid though, so I don’t think you will be able to out run an avalanche that is traveling at 245 miles an hour.
The snow storm hits the city
Snow can only be lived by certain living organisms; the people that live in the cities, can only hope to God that they won’t be in a bad situation once the snow storm hits the city and then is over.
City people tend to have everything done for them, so when emergency hits, city people will actually make a phone call to the authority and let them deal with the emergency.
What city people don’t understand though is that there may be a day. When the authorities or the people in charge of handling emergencies on their city may not be there to help them.
Millions and millions of people
We’ve already experience something similar to what we just mentioned, we cannot forget when millions and millions of people have been left stranded or left to die due to the fact that the help don’t get to the people fast enough.
When the temperatures drop, know and understand that your life is in danger at all times, and if you don’t believe then do your research and you’ll see that you have to protect the weather out there in the cold.
Besides the cold weather is also not good if you are trying to grow food or if you are trying to stay warm
Low temperatures mean extreme weather and when there is extreme weather around then you’ll know that the hand of The Creator Himself is the cause behind the extreme low temperatures that we all have many times experienced.
Another one of the most devastating stream weather conditions is a hurricane, a hurricane does not mess around and when it is your time to say good bey then you better believe that they hurricane will indeed take the lives that it came to claim.
Very strong winds
A huge storm that is more than 500 miles wide and can have very strong winds are said to be hurricanes, at speeds of up to 200 mph.
Hurricanes usually move over the open ocean at 10-20 miles per hour and can last up to a week before it dissipates.
Hurricanes are not a threat to our society when they are over the open ocean; however, when hurricanes make land fall, our cities and many human lives pay a high price of being in the way of the hurricane.
The calmest part of the hurricane is the center of the storm and it is called the eye of the storm, which hurricanes use to rotate around in a counter-clockwise or clockwise as well.
The damage that a hurricanes can cause can have long term effects in your lives if you experience a hurricane, so when you hear of a hurricane coming your way, do run away and evacuate your house if you have to do that, because a hurricane can end your life.
Hurricanes always claim lives
So be aware of the hurricanes that may come your way because they always claim lives and I am sure you wouldn’t want it to be yours.
During the warmest months of the year, from June 1st to November 1st The Atlantic ocean has many hurricanes forming over large masses of warm water.
Hurricanes happen during the warmest time of the year because when the water is warm it let’s out warm air, which rises because of its lower density than cold air.
A Hurricane is fuel by hot air and cold air
As the hot air rises the surrounding cold air help the hurricane form the eye of the hurricane, because the cold air swirls to replace the hot air that is rising from the oceans, as the cold air replaces the hot air, it also fuels the hot air by becoming hot air as well, ultimately the hurricane is fuel by the hot air and cold air relationship that happens during the warmest months of the year over large masses of water.
The type of hurricanes that we have seen are category one (winds 74-95 mph 64-82 kt), two (winds 96-110 mph 83-95 kt), three (winds 111-130 mph 96-113 kt), four (winds 131-155 mph 114-135 kt) and five (winds 156 mph and up 135+ kt) hurricane; the higher the category of the hurricane the worse it is for the people that have to face that type of hurricane.
What the weather can do
Extreme weather can really change the life of many people, it is wise to know what the weather can do and why it is doing what it is that it is doing.
When you know about the weather and how it becomes extreme to the point where it may affect the life of many people including yours, then you’ll be better prepared to face the weather and not lose your lives, because extreme weather is a reality that we all have to face.
Alright fellow readers we have reached the end of our conversation, please leave me a comment and let me know what are your thoughts on extreme weather.
Preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
There is no safe place outside during a thunderstorm
Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing an emergency plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency.
Each year, many people are killed or seriously injured by tornadoes and severe thunderstorms despite advance warning. Some did not hear the warning; others heard the warning but did not believe it would happen to them.
If you hear a warning or observe threatening skies, only YOU can make the decision to seek safety. This could be the most important decision you will ever make.
Remember, there is no substitute for getting to a safe place
If you’re outside and hear thunder, the only way to significantly reduce your risk of becoming a lightning casualty is to get inside a substantial building or hard-topped metal vehicle as fast as you can.
Everyone needs to prepare for the hazards that could affect their area. FEMA, the American Red Cross and the NWS urge every household to develop an emergency plan.
Where will your family and friends be when disaster strikes?
They could be anywhere—at work, at school, or in the car. How will you find each other? Will you know if your children are safe?
Disaster may force you to evacuate your neighborhood or keep you in your home. What would you do if basic services such as water, gas, electricity, or telephones were cut off?
Plan ahead to avoid this dangerous situation!
Gather information about hazards. Contact your local emergency management office, American Red Cross chapter and National Weather Service office.
Find out what types of disaster could occur and how best to respond and protect yourself.
Learn your community’s warning signals and evacuation plans.
FEMA has information about how to prepare for different hazards at: www.fema.gov/plan/index.shtm.
