What Damage Can A Blizzard Cause?

A blizzard is able to cause things like collapsed roofs, damaged buildings and structures and problems with the outsides of housing. Power lines are often taken out by large blizzards, too, thanks to the incredibly strong winds. The strong winds can take out trees, too, as well as turn over and damage large objects. Most heating will be taken out by blizzards, too, given the severity of the winds and the temperature. Bowed walls often occur, too, thanks to the weight of the snow against buildings.

A blizzard is an incredibly severe snowstorm. Blizzards are characterised by the wind that comes with the snow, which is generally incredibly strong. By definition, a blizzard and a snowstorm differ because of the strength of the wind that is involved. Snowstorms won’t cause that much damage, whilst a blizzard will cause damage that is comparable to a tornado.

In order to be a blizzard, the snowstorm must have winds that remain in the excess of 56 km/h. This is equal to winds of around 35 mph. The snow must either be blowing or drifting, too, which should reduce the visibility to around 400 m or so, or a quart rod a mile or less. It must also lat for a prolonged period of time - the generally assumed period of time is around three hours long. Ground blizzards are a kind of blizzard that requires high winds, in order to stir up the already fallen snow.

Blizzard are able to bring about near-whiteout conditions in colonised areas. A strong blizzard is capable of paralysing regions for many days at a time. This is particularly true where snowfall is rare and unusual, as these areas will not be equipped to deal with such a large amount of snow. The 1972 blizzard in Iran caused 4,000 deaths, and was the deadliest blizzard in recorded history.

They can cause physical harm to people and animals who are caught outdoors during one. Severe blizzards can cause "snow blindness," so that you can't see where you are going, whether you are walking or driving. Blizzards can ice up trees, causing them to topple, or breaking branches that land on power lines and shut off power to entire neighborhoods. If you live in an old home, a blizzard may cause your water pipes to freeze and perhaps burst. A blizzard causes havoc with traffic. (Can you tell I live in Minnesota?)

A blizzard can cause damage to buildings, water mains, power lines and transport links. This will affect every aspect of life... When a blizzard comes you should make sure you have food shelter and heat, make sure you're safe.
