Winds of the World

A cool breeze on a hot summer day is simply heaven! But that same breeze can become more intense and before you know it, you have strong winds lashing out at you, causing things to fly unless they are secured properly. This same wind given the right circumstance can morph into a gale or even a hurricane. You can never underestimate the power of Mother Nature!

Cyclones, tornadoes, hurricanes and gale storms are common in all new reports. What you may not realise is that different cultures have vastly different name for the winds that blow their way.

This week we look at the winds commonly found in the Middle East and North Africa.
