Weather is often unpredictable. Meteorologists constantly are on the look out for weather that can affect humans, and it is their job to warn the public about these things. Recently there has been a warning issued of major storms in the Great Plains region of the US. Storms of this magnitude are capable of a lot of damage and destruction. They can produce tornadoes, baseball-sized hail, and mass amounts of rain that cold cause flooding. Mitigation is important to minimize damage. There is no protecting houses or cars, but if the weather threatens human life, it is important that preventative action is taken.“Forecasters warned residents to brace for “life-threatening” weather Saturday night and today from Texas to the Great Lakes.”
This is a obviously a very large area, and every person in this span from Texas to Michigan is not in danger. However, it is important that people learn that possible trouble could be coming their way. Now that the warning has been issued it is important for people to watch what is happening with the progressions of the storm, and prepare for it.
Hundreds of tornadoes have already been spotted in this area of the United States and human life is in danger. “Tornadoes and strong storms walloped the Midwest, killing at least five people in Oklahoma and causing massive damage throughout the region.” This is just the beginning of the storm. Forecasters predict that more severe weather is on its way. This weather could be even harsher than what has already occurred.
Preparing for the storm should happen a few days in advance, because by the time the storms starts there is no time to evacuate. Most of the damage done in these storms will be from high winds and hail. There is really no way to prevent this from happening. Houses and building will be destroyed, debris will be flung all over the place, it is just how Mother Nature works. At least when dealing with these particular storms, forecasters are able to predict when and where the next storm is going to happen. The people in these areas should be notified immediately so they can begin to prepare.
