Hurricane Season (AKA 303)

Trivia 303

 

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

 

We all know hurricanes are dangerous but do you know the deadliest one of them all?  You may say it was the one that hit Galveston Texas but you would be wrong.  The deadliest hurricane to date was called Bhola in the 1970’s.  It hit Bangladesh and killing somewhere between 150,000 to 300,000 people. The true count will never be known but even the smallest number here is staggering. 

 

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Those are numbers we simply cannot comprehend, really.  Past a point, it is simply overwhelming.

Good morning James,

Any loss of life is huge. I have seen a tornado and the after effects of a hurricane but never been near one.

Make yourself a great day.

Good morning James. I feel like I should have known this because I lived and learned then, but I didn't.

I do remember that. Natural disasters are always horrible no matter what but with a hurricane there's really no where to go to seek shelter.

We just had two near misses here on the islands. People who live in coastal zones know that the flooding from storm surge is usually the biggest cause of deaths. Places at sea level - like much of Bangladesh - suffer the most damage but I didn't know about this one. The loss must have been horrific.

OMG! I had no idea that the Bangladesh hurricane claimed so many lives.

I was in the 1982 Hurricane Iwa - Hawaiian Islands. Lot of destruction but not loss of lives.
