Some extreme weather events seem to be enemies of other extreme weather events. Actually, they help us to respond to themselves. It depends on what the even involves: whether water or fire etc.
This picture is made up of different extreme weather events. Some are involved with water, others, fire etc. These events don't blend as in the picture. They all have spaces to fit in, just like how the picture.
Now lets look at some examples of these extreme weather events that help us to respond to others.
- Hurricanes help us to respond to wildfires
Hurricanes involve rainwater whilst wildfires involve fire. Water and fire don't blend as in the picture. Water is at one side and fire on the other. Normally, when a house is on fire, firefighters use water to put off the fire so when a wildfire occurs along with a hurricane, it gives us an extra hand to fight the wildfire. An example of such events happened in Australia four years ago (stated in case 1 of step 2 of session 2 of extreme weather:the global conversation.)
- Heatwaves and hurricanes help us to respond to themselves
Heatwaves are related to hot temperature. Normally, when we say hot weather, we talk about rise in temperature and when we talk cold weather, we talk about decrease in temperature. Lets just go straight to the point. When a hurricane occurs along with a heatwave:
1) In a case where the hurricane occurs first, then the heatwave will give us some help in recovering from the hurricane.
2) In a case where the heatwave occurs first, then the hurricane will give us an extra hand to recover from the heatwave.
So it depends on the extreme weather event that happens first.
These are some examples of these extreme weather events that help us to respond to others.
