Description

Tsunami. Maelstrom. Microburst. Katabatic Winds. Great Balls of Fire. Our language contains interesting terms to describe some of Mother Nature's furies. Here in the Southwest, there are monsoons and haboobs, seasonal weather features that can unleash powerful winds and torrents of rain or dust. Join us at the Garden to learn more about these natural phenomena. You will learn how the terminology was originated, why these climatic events happen, why they only occur at certain times of the year and how to maximize your safety if you are caught in the storm.
