Humberto becomes first hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic season ...

Humberto becomes first hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic season ... | Natural Disasters | Scoop.it
Storm Gabrielle continues to drench Bermuda, but officials estimate that Humberto will eventually weaken far from land.
Remington Schroder's insight:

This is supposedly going to be the first hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic season. This isn't really a good thing to be discussing but it's a natural disaster so it's gonna happen one way or another.

Remington Schroder's insight:

I agree that its is weird that they are having floods after recent forest fires. Also the government should help aid colorado so that the floods do not cause to much financial debt from the damages.

This tornado is coming right for a town. It looks like this might even be a school.

I think it's interesting and strange at the same time. Why would there be a random tornado breakout? And it's also just in Virginia, I find that strange.

I think this looks cool because you only really see one tornado but having two hovering over a lake at the same time is kinda cool. But it also make two times as dangerous.
Iloria Phoenix's comment, October 3, 2013 9:47 AM
I think this is very interesting but if the tornados become severe they could be dangerouse and cause damage to the Cities surrounding the lake.

One thing's for sure: nature is anything but tame. While we've learned to deal with thunderstorms and snow flurries, the threat of natural disaster always seems to be looming over us.
Remington Schroder's insight:

They are huge! They are capable of a lot of damage. If you look in the top picture there are animals there while the wildlife is being destroyed.

thanks everyone for the re-scoops and comments - I had the privilege of working for 4 years in disaster recovery and have seen both the best and worst nature can throw at us, the resilience of people and these hidden impacts on wildlife - I can only urge each and everyone of you to be aware of the potential of such disasters and make preparations should such an event strike. If you're a business or know people in business who might be at risk please let them know about http://www.areuready.com.au where they can download a how to for preparation for under 12 bucks.

Anthony, awesome to 'meet' someone with such experience in disaster recovery. Only witnessed multiple hurricane disasters while living in FL but those were certainly enough!
Anthony M Turner's comment, October 3, 2013 7:21 AM
great to meet you to Sharla - all extreme weather events have a bitter sweet and are very scary - I think they help us understand how small we really are.

The lawmakers are allowing the state to issue 500 million dollars to the school to start building tornado shelters for safety. I think this is a good thing because it's gonna be a lot safer, but it can also be bad because if something happens to the shelter all the kids are gonna be under it. So not only a couple could die, but a lot of kids could die.
