When I was a little girl we lived in the flood district . When it's raining especially with typhoons and hurricanes, the water goes up to my waist ! Sometimes I see little canoe on the street!<br />
<br />
Also occasionally we will have earthquakes and I was in two big ones! 7.5 and 8.7 on the scale.<br />
Big buildings collapse near our playgrounds!

A tornado; July 31' 1987 Edmonton, AB. Canada. About 10 miles from the eye. It shook my pickup and pounded rain and hail upon us for 20 - 30 minutes just outside the city limits. Then it passed through the outskirts on the east of the city destroying a trailer park and 27 people also.

The aircraft carrier on which I served was returning from the Western Pacific and encountered rough seas whipped up by a typhoon. Walking on board a ship that is pitching and rolling is a bit of an experience. The deck will often rise to meet your foot, or is no longer there when you expect your foot to come in contact with that hard surface.
