Severe Weather

Introduction

Introduction

Sunny, cloudy, stormy, windy, cold, hot, dry…these are just some of the different types of weather we experience throughout the year. Some people experience all types of weather depending on the season, but other people experience only a few of these. It all depends on where you live. No matter where you live, though, chances are the weather can be very dangerous at times.
