Having said that, along with the threat of severe weather events and/or tropical cyclone events, comes an inherent threat associated with the natural dangers associated with such atmospheric phenomena. The threat of severe storms and tropical cyclones alone can often intimidate many people into a state where they are left feeling helpless and not knowing what to do during any period of time leading up to such an event. Thus, many people will often talk to mental health professionals about such issues or work to seek out someone or some resource which could help alleviate the headaches tied to worrying about such threats.
