Weather and Natural Disasters
Bucharest has very interesting weather patterns. They have cold, windy winters and very hot summers. In the winter, it can reach lows as low as 32 degrees Fahrenheit, (0 degrees Celsius). In these months, Bucharest gets only two or less hours of sunshine each day. In the summer, Bucharest can reach highs of 86 degrees Fahrenheit, (30 degrees Celsius), with very little rainfall. Bucharest has a bad problem with Earthquakes. It really is their only very dangerous disaster. For example, in Alabama we do tornado drills in our schools, but in Bucharest, they do several earthquake drills.
