    Best answer: You need to get out NOW, this is NOT a hurricane you want to stick around for! This storm when it hits will come in as a category 4 storm as early as Thursday, this means winds of over 200km an hour, these winds will destroy buildings/homes in its path, power gone etc. This doesn't even include the fact that rain totals could hit or even excede 4 feet of water in spots, keep in mind 150mm is enough to swallow cars on road ways.

    If you decide to ride this storm out you will need the following-

    1. Enough water and food to last 72 hours
    2. Fully charged cell phone
    3. First aid kit
    4. Back up generator

    Good luck.

  • When will it start to get cold outside?

    It's fall now and it is still 1000 degrees outside. I live in NC so I know that it will never get freezing cold, matter of fact I don;t even think my area got snow last year. It normally doesn't get somewhat cold around here until Thanksgiving

  • Hey Canadian peeps, does Canada get many tornadoes? And are they strong?

    I hear Ontario/Quebec is the country's Tornado Alley. There was a strong tornado that destroyed parts of Montreal literally just yesterday and most of the city is without power. And didn't Southern Ontario and even Toronto itself get nailed by a tornado recently? Anyway, are Canadian tornadoes comparable... show more

  • I llive in Southwest PA, when does it start getting cold and snowing, I love snow and I would like to know so can anyone tell me?

    Best answer: The northeast US (including the Great Lakes regions) tends to see the earliest real snow (snow that accumulates) somewhere toward the end of November and into early December.

    Best answer: The northeast US (including the Great Lakes regions) tends to see the earliest real snow (snow that accumulates) somewhere toward the end of November and into early December. There will usually be some snow in October (you will probably see snow flurries or short snow showers) but it won't be enough to stay on the ground and it won't usually be below freezing for long, that early in the season.

    Occasionally, the first snow accumulation gets delayed to the end of December (it isn't rare to not have a white Christmas). Each year does its own particular thing, so hard to say for sure.

  • Is it true if you Stand by a window during storm you can get shocked?

    Best answer: Well, you could get shocked anywhere inside but the odds are pretty low. An open window could leave a route for getting zapped by a very close strike outside, and a closed window would lessen that chance of getting shocked, but you could still get shocked if the electricity has an easy route in, like say the... show more
    Best answer: Well, you could get shocked anywhere inside but the odds are pretty low. An open window could leave a route for getting zapped by a very close strike outside, and a closed window would lessen that chance of getting shocked, but you could still get shocked if the electricity has an easy route in, like say the window frames are all metal.

    The risks are slightly higher near an opening to the outside or near phone-electrical-cable lines and plumbing pipes that provide a route for electricity from the outside. The odds are still way long though.

  • How much is 5-10mm of rain?

    Best answer: 5-10mm is 0.5-1.0 centimeters.
    There are 2.54 centimeters per inch.

    For YOUR question, it is not how MUCH rain that matters, but how HEAVY the rain is.
    1/3 of an inch of rain is not much, especially if it drizzles over 10 hours. but 1/3 of an inch of rain - if it ALL falls in 2 minutes, will soak everything.

  • Why is the west coast of the United States always so dry?

    Best answer: The dry latitudes on the west coast, the latitudes south of San Francisco, are dry all the way around the world.

    Best answer: The dry latitudes on the west coast, the latitudes south of San Francisco, are dry all the way around the world. Because of Earth's curvature, Earth's tilt, different amounts of sunlight hitting Earth at different angles because of those two factors, and resulting prevailing wind systems, dryness is the rule for those latitudes. The eastern half of the US is the exception to that rule.

    What makes the eastern half of the US different is the Gulf of Mexico to its immediate south. The Gulf of Mexico is an extremely large, extremely shallow body of water. Because of its shallowness, it gets very, very warm from the sun. If you go swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, like in South Padre, TX, it's barely cool at all, often even being warmer than bathwater you leave behind when you get out of the tub. That's how warm it is. Compare that to the waters off the coast of Southern California, which are so cold that surfers hardly ever wear shorts and almost always wear wetsuits. So, like very warm water does, like when you take a shower, it puts off a lot of steam. That steam enters the atmosphere. Because the air above the eastern half of the US to the Gulf's direct north is even warmer than the air over the Gulf during the summer from having land instead of a body of water beneath it making it more temperate, that warmer air over the eastern half of the US rises faster than the Gulf Air and so sucks that warm, moist Gulf air northward and then the prevailing westerlies move it eastward. Then, as that warm, moist air eventually cools, you get condensation and rainfall.

    In fact, the moisture and the heat energy that the Gulf of Mexico pumps into the atmosphere is so immense and intense, it spawns the strongest storms in the world: hurricanes. You don't get hurricanes in California because the Pacific, which is the biggest, deepest ocean and so is by far the coldest ocean besides the Arctic Ocean, the very deepest, coldest parts of the Pacific being immediately off the west coast of the Americas, is too cold and simply doesn't pump anywhere near the amount of moisture and heat into the atmosphere to spawn the storms and climate you get in the eastern US because of the Gulf of Mexico.

    Now, the inland areas of the western US are even dryer than the Pacific Coast for a variety of other reasons, the biggest of those being the Rockies forcing the moisture out of the air as it forces the prevailing westerly air upward before allowing it to move east, but the the Pacific Coast, which is at barely above sea-level, is dry because of the extreme coolness of the Pacific, while the eastern half of the US, despite being east of the Rockies, is nonetheless very green because of the extreme warmness of the Gulf of Mexico.
