Why is it dangerous to go out during typhoon?
A typhoon is any tropical depression with winds faster than 119km/74mph or higher. Typhoons can cause MAJOR flooding. Just look at hurricane Katrina the hit New Orleans, LA, USA. That's not a typical hurricane/typhoon, but still be careful. Do not go out in a typhoon, you could be blown away or flood water will most likely be contaminated with human or animal waste. Only go out if it is an emergency.

A typhoon is a strong, organized tropical storm with a closed circulation, convection, and sustained winds of at least 74 mph that occurs in the Pacific Ocean north of the equator and between 180 degrees and 140 degrees east longitude.
A Typhoon is a name used in east Asia for a hurricane. It is a typeof tropical cyclone occurring in the western regions of the PacificOcean. A typhoon is similar to a hurricane in levels ofdestructiveness. The word typhoon comes from the Chinese termtai-fung meaning great wind. See "What is a cyclon…e?" for a fullerdefinition.

Damage to Buildings and Structures Foundations and supports for buildings may fail, leading to shifting, sliding, or collapse. Bridges, tunnels, and roadways can also fail, imperiling motorists or bystanders. Personal Injury Because mud is usually thicker and heavier than water, it can sweep vic…tims into channels or off hillsides, causing death by suffocation or impact (with fixed objects or other debris). Livestock and Animals Panicked animals present a threat while protecting or securing them. Secondary Deaths or Injuries The blockage of pathways or roadways can increase the chance of slips, falls, and accidents, and emergency services (police, fire, and medical vehicles) could be temporarily curtailed.

If lightning strikes and u r in water, then u could possibly get electrocuted. The main reason is that during a storm there is often rain and heavy winds, the rain would generally be colder and could lower your core body temperature if you stayed out in it too long, it would also render it harder to… see if it was heavy. The main concern though is the wind as you would have to fight against waves which could include whitecaps and the current of the water. It would tire you out very fast and there is a strong risk that you could drown. (MORE)
Answer . Do not stay in open spaces, do not drive or walk, do not be near or operate electrical powered devices, look for shelter in well constructed and solid places. .

\nNo artificial sweeteners, including sucralose (Splenda) have been proven safe. Not because they've all been proven unsafe - although some have (Aspartame, Saccharin) - but because pregnant women aren't generally amenable to being treated as guinea pigs, the testing population just doesn't exist -… they test mice, etc., and theorize from those results. However, most pregnant women use sweeteners - even the bad stuff - with no ill effects. In the best scenario, you would stay away from processed food, including refined sugars - sugar does nothing but spike your insulin levels and cause inflammation - it can also increase your chances for gestational diabetes. Nevertheless, when your hormones are surging, sometimes you just need a donut - so have one - your baby most likely will not come out with 6 arms if you do. I put back several and never had a problem. If you can forgo simple sugars - good for you - it's the first great mommy thing you can do for your little one. Also, eat lots of lean protein, green vegetables, fresh fruit and grains - and take folic acid - you cannot take too much folic acid so err on the cautionary side and take a lot- you pee out any excess on a daily basis, just like Vitamin C. Lack of folic acid can cause miscarriage and deformation and the first trimester is when it is important because that is when baby forms all the important stuff - after 1st rimester, it is just getting bigger but still don't scrimp on the folate until the baby is on the outside of you. Plus, half the population is missing a gene they discovered a few years back that compromises your body's ability to process Vitamin B and if you fall into that half - the USA rda of Vit B will not cut it for you - so take excessive folate supplements before pregnancy and throughout to be safe. Lack of folate can even interfere with insulin receptors, cause weight gain and heart disease in those over 35, and prevent pregnancy. Good luck! (MORE)
At 8 months you should be taking it very easy.

The Eurofighter Typhoon has two Eurojet EJ2000 turbojets each producing 20,000lbs each. All this gives it a maximum speed of mach2 (about 1500 mph) An EF200 Eurofighter Typhoon can fly at 2,125 kmh, a speed of 1,321 mph The Eurofighter has a top speed of about Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound), or 1…,386 mph at 36,000 feet. It's major advantage over other fighters is its ability to 'supercruise', ie to maintain a speed of over mach 1 without using the engine afterburners thus saving fuel and dramatically improving it's fighting range and endurance.

"YES! VERY DANGEROUS.." is a common reaction to the question of alcohol beverage consumption during pregnancy although things are rarely so simple as they might first appear. Several important points are worth noting. There is no scientific evidence that drinking in moderation (no more than one d…rink of beer, wine or distilled spirits) by pregnant women has ever caused Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) or otherwise harmed a single baby. Women who choose to drink in moderation while pregnant can do so with knowledge that their decision is consistent with scientific evidence. There is always the possibility that some as yet unidentified harm to a baby might result from light or moderate drinking during pregnancy. Given the above possibility, even if remote, the very safest choice for an expectant mother's fetus would be to abstain. The safest choice for the woman's own health may be to drink in moderation. Therefore, women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant should discuss the matter with their own physician or health care provider. (MORE)
A typhoon is a circular storm. In the Atlantic it is called a hurricane. In the Indian ocean, it is a cyclone. The winds rotate counter clockwise around a central "eye" or calm spot. The winds are accompanied by rain. The storm becomes a typhoon when the winds achieve a speed of 63 knots or 63 nauti…cal miles per hour (about 100 kilometers per hour). The high wind and driving rain can cause damage. A number of deaths are caused when the wind and water causes mudslides on denuded hills. Houses are covered with mud. Covering some, crushing other. Other shoddily constructed houses fall apart. Some people remain on low lying islands to be swept away by large waves. The rain causes creeks and rivers to swell and flood washing away houses. Then some people go out in the storm to be blown off roofs or washed away. Some stay inside a well constructed building and watch the show outside. (MORE)
The ef-2000 Eurofighter typhoon can travel at a top speed of up to 1321 m.ph at approx. 11,000m

In a strong typhoon or hurricane the winds can carry enough force to directly damage or destroy the roofs and walls of houses. Whether the windows are open or closed will make no difference in a situation like this. The storm surge of a typhoon carries even more force than the wind.

We humans evolved here on Planet Earth; we are the way we are because we're HERE. Going out into space means that we'll have to take our environment with us. That environment includes air (not too much, not too little, and with the right proportions of oxygen and other gasses), water, and food. Th…ere may be water ice in deep craters at the south pole of the Moon, but we're unlikely to find air or food there, so we'll need to take it with us. If the air leaks out, or we run out of oxygen, or if the carbon dioxide that we exhale builds up too much, or if we run out of food or water, we'll die. Space travel itself isn't particularly dangerous, as long as we understand that we ourselves must maintain our Earthly environment wherever we go. (MORE)

The amount of damage done by a typhoon or cyclone depends on many factors, not the least of which is the storm's path. In populated areas, especially in underdeveloped regions, casualties from flooding can become very high.

Its floods destroyed more than 9000 homes in the Philippines. By contrast, the 8 typhoons of the season combined for only about 211 total deaths. (MORE)
