Storms impact everyone in their path. Children are often the worst affected, especially girls. Right now, Cyclone Mocha is leaving a trail of destruction. The millions affected include people in the world’s largest refugee camp, at Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center has said the cyclone has sustained a wind speed of 259 kilometres per hour (161 mph), with gusts reaching 315 kmph (195 mph). That is similar to a Category 5 Atlantic hurricane, as fast as an F1 racing car.
