Although Florida is known as the ‘Sunshine State’, it is often affected by tropical cyclones – weather systems which produce heavy rain and strong winds. Depending on the location and strength, these storms are sometimes called typhoons or hurricanes. Sometimes nearly 50cm of rain could fall in just two days, causing chaos for the people living there.
