How can tropical storms be managed?

In areas where tropical storms are common, the people living in these areas will have more experience with these types of storms, and so the management of the impacts may be more effective. Management of these storms include early warnings, evacuation plans and building design built to withstand storms.

Hurricanes need a lot of heat to form, which is why they usually occur over tropical seas (at least 26°C). The sun is close to the equator, providing energy to heat the ocean. The warm ocean heats the air above it causing it to rise rapidly., and more items.

What strategies are used to reduce the effects of tropical storms?

It is important to use strategies such as monitoring, prediction, protection and planning to reduce the effects of tropical storms. Tropical storms are unpredictable natural hazards; however, several strategies are used to reduce their risk.

So, how do Hics and LICs manage tropical storms?

There are 4 main ways that HICs and LICs can manage tropical storms. The main aims of these methods are to save lives, and to protect personal property and infrastructure. Some of these strategies are more expensive than others.

How do we predict tropical storms?

These, combined with weather charts and computer software, are used to predict the path a tropical storm could take. Satellite image technology is used to monitor and predict tropical storms. High-income countries (HICs), such as the USA, have an effective hurricane monitoring and prediction system.

You could be thinking “How would forecasting the path of a tropical storm help people?”

Suggest how forecasting the path of a tropical storm would help people who live in areas at risk. It can help them prepare for the possibility of a hurricane hitting them. Forecasts are regularly updated on the internet so if people realise that they are in the ‘cone’ of uncertainty they might choose to evacuate the area.

There is another tropical system off the coast of Africa that has the potential to become the next named storm in the Atlantic, according to the National Hurricane Center. Forecasters are giving this system a 20 percent chance of forming over the next five days.

How do we prepare for tropical storms and hurricanes?

Governments and NGOs, such as the Red Cross, advise people on preparing for and responding to tropical storms. Early warning systems are installed in countries such as Bangladesh, helping to reduce the number of deaths.

How to prepare for a tropical storm?

Planning for tropical storms 1 Planning for tropical storms. Tropical storms are un predictable natural hazards; however, several strategies are used to reduce their risk. 2 Monitoring and prediction. Satellite and radar technology are used to track the development and approach of a tropical storm. A couple more items to think about are 4 planning, and 3 protection.

What conditions are needed for a tropical storm?

Tropical Storms start within 5º and 30º north and south of the equator where surface sea temperatures reach at least 26.5ºC. The air above the warm sea is heated and rises. This causes low pressure. As the air rises it cools then condenses, forming clouds. The air around the weather system rushes in to fill the gap caused by the rising air.
