According to Fox 5NY, A bombogenesis is a snowstorm with hurricane strength winds, 1-2-2018. This is supposed to be one of the worse storms that we have had in a very long time, because of the wind. It is a weather bomb that is a combination of strong wind, snow, and a possible hurricane/cyclone condition.
Explosive cyclogenesis (also referred to as a weather bomb, meteorological bomb, explosive development, or bombogenesis) refers in a strict sense to a rapidly deepening extratropical cyclonic low-pressure area. (Wikipedia, 2018). It may get slightly warmer than it has been in the past couple of days. Clouds may thicken causing a low pressure storm. Then the weather will drop once again to unbelievably cold weather.
The last few days have been so cold. Heaters have been breaking down. Boilers had to be replaced. People had to sleep in outside wear like coats and hats. Babies had to suffer from the frigid cold even indoors. Be mindful of the older generation, because they too have been suffering in the cold. People of all ages should be mindful of checking on one another, especially the sick and the unemployed, because it could be anyone that is suffering from the frigid cold during a bombogenesis/ frigid cold weather.
This can be very dangerous when buildings and homes are not up to code for this type of weather. Snow can be very heavy to shovel. Imagine the weight of snow that is being shoveled on a rooftop that is in need of repair. Many times, FEMA may have to be called due to damaged property, but it is best to have a small surplus put away for a rainy day or help a friend or loved on in need of warmth, food, and clean water.
Unfortunately, you may never know when a friend is suffering or a loved one, unless you reach out. Send a friend or loved one a helping hand, who may not be able to afford things like a heater, food, or clean water. Some may even be homeless, yet you would never know.
