Weather

The weather around this area i usually at a high temperature like some days it gets to be more than 90 degrees, But around November through January it's cold and windy. The weather effects the residents by how much the heat. I looked up that in the hospital the level of people dehydrating and fainting rises. Also the bills for water and the air conditioning bills rise. But there is also a good side to having hot weather. For example when it gets warm you can go to the beach or a water park to be with family or friends.

Natural Disasters

Some of the natural disasters in florida is a tornado occurred in 2003 07/29. In 2007 02/08 there was a severe storm and tornadoes. The frequencies of tornadoes in florida this past ten years is very high because when i researched for this there were many dates that said Florida got hit by tornadoes, hurricanes, and severe tropical storms. Floridas frequency for natural disasters is low. Florida had 2 bad years but 8 good years but we got hit a lot. To make sure you stay safe during any future disasters you should have a box of supplies to help you during the storm. For example, in the box you should have like a safety kit, blankets, pillows, food, and water.
