I have a beautiful weather application on our iphone that sends me upgraded alerts throughout the afternoon when there is the risk of extreme weather.
I believe some people who owe their lives to earthquake warnings that gave them sheer moments to dash to safety before their immediate area was impacted.
If you live across the ocean from a huge underwater tectonic plate movement, those weather alerts will tell you if there is an imminent tsunami on your horizon. In our neck of the woods, there’s a much higher risk of sudden tornadoes than there is a tsunami, and that’s despite residing far from tornado alley and only a few miles away from the ocean. In any event, at least I can rely on our weather app to warn me of any sudden weather-related emergencies or natural disasters. Lately I’ve been getting unusual kinds of weather alerts altogether, 1s warning of heat advisories. These differ in exact definition from area to area, but 1 drastic takeaway is that they usually acsupplier weather that brings a sudden heat wave that can have deleterious effects on human physical and mental health. This is especially pertinent if there is a record high on a random afternoon and you’d have no plan the weather is so boiling outside if your weather app hadn’t already warned you how that was going to happen. It’s also a friendly warning to let you believe that your air conditioning system is going to cycle more than respected if you don’t prepare. I believe I’m not the only 1 struggling to afford air conditioning system in the Summer heat, but my electricity bill goes up by $76 while all of us were in the Summer while I run the air conditioning system throughout the afternoontime minutes.
