Severe Thunderstorms by: kimya Mcewen

Severe Thunderstorms are dangerous. They form when cool air rises and water vapor condenses and forms cumulus clouds. When condensation is occurring latent heat is released and helps the thunderstorms grow.

If you are in a severe thunderstorm you should go to a substantial building or even a vehicle with closed windows. Before you leave to go to your safe place make sure you have your emergency kit and first aid kit. Be very careful during this situation because there could be heavy rain, strong winds, or even hail.

A bricked school building is a good example

To prepare for a severe thunderstorm you sure talk to your family about what to do during a severe thunderstorm and make a list of items that you will need. Protect your animals homes and make sure that all trees are more resistant against strong winds.

If you have disabilities to prepare for a thunderstorm you should invest in a whistle or a bell. Some people with disabilities have alarms with strobe lights. This will come to a good advantage.

Severe thunderstorms can destroy peoples homes and the recovery is awful, To help your community recover you can start by donating clothes, providing shelter for those who have lost their homes, and by providing food.

Doors of Hope is one example of shelters.
