Typhoons and hurricanes are tropical cyclones. They have different
names only because they are produced in different seas and different terms
used by different countries. Generally, tropical cyclones that are produced
in the Pacific are called typhoons.
Typhoons can bring enough rain to the vast area, becoming a rain system
that is closely related to the production and living. But typhoons also
bring us more disasters.
Every year, the number of people killed by meteorological disasters
in the worldwide accounted for 44.9% of the aggregate deaths in natural disasters.
It is one of the most serious natural disasters in the world.
In 2003, the typhoon "cuckoo" landed in Huidong, Shenzhen and Zhongshan,
Guangdong province, killing 32 people and injuring nearly 100 people. At
least 5 people were missing. The typhoon severely damaged roads,
communications, water conservancy facilities and crops in the area.
On August 12, 2004, typhoon "Yunna" landed in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province.
Seventy-five cities, districts and counties were affected, with a total
of 12.99 million people affected. The direct economic loss was 18,128 million
Typhoons may also bring heavy rain, which caused flash floods,
landslides and debris flow. If you are in danger, don’t be careless and fluky.
In the area where typhoons often occur, people must also grasp
self-help knowledge in floods and people in mountains should master
the dynamics of landslides and floods to prevent other disasters
caused by typhoons.
Probably all people living in the coastal areas of southeast
China are aware of the power of typhoons. When a typhoon passes,
trees are uprooted sometimes and roofs can be blown off. The
wind is accompanied by torrential rain, which briefly pours
down onto the ground, flooding crops, destroying homes and
even disrupting traffic and forcing some factories to shut
down.On the surface of the sea, the typhoon is even more
vicious, raising huge waves and threatening the life of the
vessels sailing in the sea and the operators of fishing,
farming, exploration, rice oil and other operations. Typhoon
is a kind of disastrous weather, which can bring great disaster
Destructive typhoons also expose harmful substances in household goods.
For example, if chemicals and chemical containing acetone, and brake oil,
etc is not able to be collected in time, their pollution to land and water
relying for existence is unimaginable. Therefore, the contaminated items
must be collected and destroyed in a certain place. This is also one of
the important self-help measures we have adopted in typhoons.
