    So if it doesn't rain for a long period and it is very sunny does it means that it is a Heatwave?

    Great examples of extreme weather! You provide three examples (flood, drought, tornado) - can you give examples of countries that have been affected by these issues? Were they able to plan in advance for when these extreme weather events took place?

    On nation development, money to be used for construction works to promote the nation will be used to repair damaged things by the extreme weather events which can reduce the rate of development which is to be increased.

    Experts believe that the human body is able to always adapt to changes in external temperatures, which makes it able to face what is known as weather sensitivity. Experts advise to go out in different atmospheres to train the body in facing these fluctuations.
    The purity of the sky may not appeal to those who suffer from sensitivity to changes in weather conditions, because of the headache, dizzy or ataxia caused to them. The German Weather Service says 30 to 50 percent of all Germans have this condition. "The sensitivity to the weather is something that has been scientifically proven in recent years," said Christina Cup, a medical specialist for the German weather service.

    In fact, most people have reactions to weather changes. However, the human body is ready to maintain a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, which means that it will always interact with changes in external temperatures. "Always nobody notices any of this, but these usual mechanisms affect the two devices," Cope said
    Weather is one of the most important factors affecting a person's life, existence and behavior. In terms of its effect on the physical characteristics, we find that the people of Europe, where the frost and frost, their bodies are leather eggs, blond hair help them to heat the air before inhaling it, while the inhabitants of Central Africa, where they live in hot weather, find their skins black to protect them from sunburn

    Global warming affects also animals in the sea.When the water thirty degrees Celsius,the coral reef which serves as protection for most aquatic animals,and also one of the interesting ecosystems of the world can also be destroyed, that can also risk the life of sea animals. Fishes can become scarce because some will migrate from their territory to deeper parts of the sea due to the unbearable condition of the surface part of the sea and unpreventable crisis and deaths in the next few hours or days.

    The weather can affect many people's mood, for example in sweden when it is gray and boring people can get depressed. It is not directly an extreme weather but they still affect a lot of people in a bad way.

    There are many countries that have been affected by extreme weather events like in Russia : During the southern hemisphere winter of 1983, temperatures at Russia's Vostok research station in Antarctica plunged to a frighteningly cold minus 128.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which is 54 degrees colder than the winter average there and the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth but scientists at the British Antarctic Survey and the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in Russia were able to solve the mystery with a computer model developed to simulate the future evolution of the Antarctic climate, along with weather charts and satellite imagery of the area.

    I also think extreme weather affect us economically. This is because the government have to spend a lot of money on the damage caused by it and also the people who have been affected by extreme weather.

    Climate change increases the risk of illness through increasing temperature, more frequent heavy rains and runoff, and the effects of storms. Health impacts may include gastrointestinal illness like diarrhea, effects on the body's nervous and respiratory systems, or liver and kidney damage.
