"Weather in the USA" United States of America Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Ruediger

  Earthquake SF
by Ruediger

The weather in the USA which is controlled by many weather-stations every day and night can be very different. For example in winter there are tons of snow in the northern areas and especially in the south it is very hot and dry in summer. When the weather-stations react to late in those situations it is possible that thousands of people die in terrible catastrophes like tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards or earthquakes.
Blizzards are dangerous snowstorms which mostly begin in front of the coast line between Florida and North Carolina.
Few minutes later the storm reaches the beach and suddenly much snow comes from heaven.

San Francisco was destroyed by an earthquake on April 18th in 1906. When the quake started houses, lights, trees and other things fell down and not much later many houses were destroyed and burned so that people screamed and ran for their life. The quake finished and everything was quite. You could only heard sirens and some little kids who shouted for their mum?s and dad?s. No one knew how respectively where to live now. This very hard day claimed more than 2000 deaths and over 300,000 people got homeless and got in hard poverty.
