Weather

Weather is what is happening currently in the atmosphere. It can be sunny or stormy, and it may bring rain, snow, heat, drought, cold, wind and other conditions. Sometimes weather can be the cause of natural disasters. Two examples of weather-based disasters are the 1900 Galveston Hurricane and the Blizzard of 1888.

For more on other natural disasters, see the features on Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, and Volacnoes .
