Monsoon is the Arabic word “mausium”, meaning season. A monsoon is a powerful, normally violent, group of winds that differ according to season. A monsoon is made up of two main winds, the southwest winds and the northeast winds. Monsoons usually occur in the summer. They could also happen in the winter. In the summer, the winds bring water from the tropical areas. In India, monsoons occur in May. Monsoon rains last from June to September. Monsoons come from the ocean and move to tropical areas from the Caribbean to northeast Australia. Monsoons going to the southwest bring large amounts of rains to the southern and southeastern part of Asia, including India, Burma, Bangladesh and Thailand. Monsoons also happen in eastern Asia, parts of Africa, and even the southwestern United States! Monsoons don’t just blow over land they also blow over oceans, such as the north part of the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea, especially.
If there is ever a tsunami or monsoon warning, please do everything in your power to get out of that area, even if you’ve never had that kind of storm in your area before. Who knows if it will turn out to be false or not? At least it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.
