- from Hurricanes
Dark clouds fill the sky. It’s the middle of the day, but it looks like night. The wind howls, and rain hits the ground so hard that holes form in the mud, while tree branches bend and crack.
Even whole trees are uprooted and crash down to the ground. Store windows break. The roofs of buildings sail through the air, while electric wires send out sparks and dangle dangerously from broken utility poles. Signs fly across highways, and the streets are flooded with water. It is no time to be outdoors, that’s for sure. You are in the middle of a hurricane—the largest, fiercest storm nature can bring. Read on to learn more about how these huge storms start, and how can we protect ourselves from them.
