Amigo, does Merida ever get hurricanes there?

What about the rest of you? What kind of weather disasters do you get where you live?

We get hurricanes, Northeasters (Nor'easters), and blizzards.

OK - googled this one before I get questions:

The Northeaster (sometimes called Nor'easter) blows off the coast of New England. It is a northeast wind that can be extremely strong.


Usually it is a lot of rain and wind.


Of course once off the Massachusetts Coast, we had "The Perfect Storm".

The Perfect Storm was a great movie Karen!

We get Hurricanes, are long overdue for a major earthquake, and every four years have the General Elections.

Here in the "foreign country" of Indiana (had to tease you Susie! ) we get tornadic weather and the hurricane leftovers.

This year the remnants of Dennis circled over us for a week before heading east. Thanks to Katrina, our area went from a rain deficit to a rain surfeit!

We are also due for "the big one" - an earthquake of the magnitude of the New Madrid quakes of the early 1800s.

Here in Arizona, mostly all we get is heat. We do have some wicked thunderstorms, with wild wind and "micro-bursts" which are basically mini tornadoes. I also object strongly to the Florida towns boast of being the "lightning capital of the world". They haven't lived here.

However, if anyone is tired of hurricanes, come move down here. There is no way that we could get a hurricane here, too much land in between the water.

By the way, Gemlady, are you concerned about the weight of the water that the NMSZ is getting? They have micro quakes almost every day of the year and I sure would be worried.

Actually, the last few quakes in my area have been from local faults. The last one was about 30 miles away and very deep. One big jolt.

As I understand, the micro-quakes are good as they can relieve stress. It's something you know will happen but can't stress over.

Blizzard, drought and the occasional flash flood
post #15 of 18
Wildfires cause more destruction, in AZ, than anything else. Due to our naturally dry climate and many years of OVERprotecting the national forests, any little spark or lightning strike can set off a huge conflagration.

We get the occasional mini-tremors, from California's and Mexico's earthquakes but, they are only detectable by seismograph.

Mostly hurricanes here.
post #17 of 18
We get all sorts of surprising weather and "natural disasters" here...

- we had a hail storm in July with hail the size of tennis balls - it ruined 60% of this year's local wine crop and did $2000 worth of damage to my car - nice surprise when I returned from my trip

- then we had floods about 50 miles from here which caused major damage and killed 7 (?) people

- a couple of weeks back we had an earthquake - "only" 4.9 on the scale but enough to cause quite a few landslides

... this is not to mention the hot "foehn" winds, summer electric storms and the regular avalanches in winter

We do get "mini" hurricanes and tornados in NZ. Nothing too large though, but just recently one whipped through a small town and caused a lot of devastation

We get lots of floods here in Wellington and of course earthquakes all the time!
