                 Extreme Weather

 

Extreme weather includes zero visiblity fog to hail so large that it will destroy cars.

   

 

All over the world the the fog is very bad every year the death tole goes up for  

crashes and the damages go up too from hail storms ruining gardens and making dents in cars.  Every year blizzards devastate the land but people have made adjustments and ways to stop damage and deaths like salting the roads and  parking under cover.
