Storms kill at least 41 in India.

At least 41 people have died as a series of storms swept across India on Sunday 13 May 2018. Twelve people in West Bengal and nine in Andhra Pradesh are reported to have died directly as a result of lightning strikes while gathering crops, while in Uttar Pradesh and Dehli another 20 people died in a series of dust, hail, and thunder storms which brought down trees and power lines, damaged homes and caused a number of fires.

Thunder and dust storms are a common phenomena in arid regions, and are caused by high winds lifting particles from the ground. These are common in northern India in the summer season, a three month hot period lasting from March to June, when temperatures can pass 45° but humidity remains low, and high winds are particularly common ahead of the onset of the monsoon season.

Warm moist air passing over the surface of the Earth acts as an electrical generator, creating a negative charge in the cloud tops and a positive charge at the ground (or occasionally in a second cloud layer). The atmosphere acts as an electrical insulator, allowing this potential to build up, until water begins to precipitate out. This allows a channel of ionised air to form, carrying a current between the clouds and the ground, which we perceive as lightning.

  2. Dulu Saya bekerja di taoyuan hk, tapi saya sudah menyerah tinggal disana. Waktu itu mau pulang ke indo tapi gak dikasih gaji dari majikan. sempat saya putus asa. Dan ada temen saya kirim nomer nya mbah suro +6282354640471 tuk menolong saya melalui dana hibah nya. Biarlah orang pada bilang itu musrik tapi hanya tuhan yg tau. Mungkin itu salah satu jalan rejeki sy. Bisa jg di bantu melalui nomer togel. Ku doakan buat sahabat seperjuanganku semoga kalian bisa sukses amin...
