I heard from the news about the destruction and calamities by storms. I know we can avoid it. I have something likely to suggest. But let's first check about this bad weather system. Typhoon and hurricanes are huge storms that can cause destruction to large areas. They can last more than a week, can have wind speeds of 160 miles per hour or more, and can be as wide as 500 miles. Storms only form over water. Because of that, provinces along the eastern part of the Philippines includes north of Batanes group of island during southwest monsoon (Habagat) also southern Mindanao when northeast monsoon (Amihan) strikes are often the hardest hit.
Storm winds can toss objects around, carries dismantled tin roof and shatter glass. But the most dangerous part of a typhoon is the storm surge. A storm's powerful winds push ocean water over the shore, causing floods. Storm surges account for most of typhoon's damage. But if your family is prepared for hurricane, you will be safe while you sit out the storm.
Tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disaster don't strike often. And you may never have to escape a fire. Still, it's always important to know what to do in case of an emergency.
