The Dangers Of A Blizzard! As you can see Blizzards are very interesting storms and can be a very dangerous thing to deal with, especially with no power! A blizzard is severe snowstorm with high winds, cold temperatures, and low visibility. Which usually form in cold, damp, and fairly breezy climates. A blizzard forms when very cold, dry air clashes with very warm, moist air. The warm air is lifted over the cold air, and develops a front. You can freeze in a blizzard in the first 30 minutes you are outside and exposed

to a blizzard! Cumulonimbus and nimbostratus are the two most present clouds during a blizzard storm. The best way to survive a blizzard when you are outside is to find shelter, try to get dry, and to make sure you are hydrated well. If there is a blizzard and you are inside make sure you get candles, have a safety kit, and stay warm. The dangers of being caught in a blizzard can cause hypothermia, frostbite, and in serious cases death. Hypothermia is


when you have an abnormally low body temperature. Frostbite is when there is Injury to the body tissues caused by exposure to extreme cold. Some the most notable blizzards happened in 1888, 1978, 1993, and 1996. Rochester, NY averages around 94 inches of snow each year and has been named the snowiest large city in the US. Lucas Fontanez
