    Hi inspired_petal. Don't forget that we also want to hear your opinion on your posts. Which weather do you think is most extreme? Which might have the most long-term affects? Which do you think would cost a country the most to recover from?

      I personally think that a tsunami is the most dangerous. The reasons that I think this, is because it can trample livestock and crops within seconds. It can cause floods within areas of low ground and make life hard with floods and constant food shortages. Tsunamis are very dangerous and can destroy cities ad families.
      These are my reasons on why I think they are the most dangerous.

    I think the Tornado is the most extreme because they can destroy Farms which help supply food and without food we can't survive.

      Thank you for referring us to the interesting biblical story of Noah! Can you think of things that have changed since that time of human history that means we are better prepared for floods when they occur?

        Since Noah's time, there has been great strides in human knowledge . Technology has made the detection of the occurrence of extreme weather events easier.Tools and gadgets are in place to respond to extreme weather. But still more needs to be done in terms of attitudinal change.

            To begin with families must start educating their members on the need to protect and sustain the environment. Laws should be enacted that binds heads of families to educate and create awareness on the environment. It should be part and parcel of our daily conversations. Adhering to good environmental practices should It be considered as an emergency by humanity. Laws should be enforced. It is said that charity begin at home.
