You’ve seen the diabolical devastation of Hurricanes like Harvey, and now the wrath of Irma! Many humans can die, and are injured by hurricanes. Not to mention the epic flooding, and insane property damage! So how do various supernatural beings deal with huge hurricanes? Even with foreknowledge of wayward weather most paranormals won’t evacuate unless it suits them. It’s doubtful a hurricane could truly harm any paranormal creature. Mermaids have been known to swim to flooded inland areas to save human, and animal lives. Just as they’ve done for sailors on the high seas. Not even toxic sewage ridden waters cause them ill effects. Although they don’t enjoy swimming in such stagnant swill. Of course most choose to stay safe deep under the sea with their dolphin friends.
Vampires During Hurricanes
During hurricanes Vampire response can vary depending on their original intent for being in the area. A vampire stalking a specific person or simply out for blood will follow the evacuating people to wherever they go. If a vampire lives in the storm zone they will most likely stand their ground if they have an adequate blood supply. They may even look for fools who stayed behind, and target them as their next meal! Mother Nature is hard pressed to scare powerful immortals such as vampires. A vampire can easily withstand floodwaters, gale force winds, and other hurricane hazards. If you are shocked to see someone walking with ease into 100 mph winds then you might have just seen a vampire, or some other person of a paranormal persuasion! The only danger for a vamp is if they get swept away by a particularly powerful flood or wind surge as dawn approaches. Perhaps they were injured, and weakened by a Vampire Slayer. If trapped in the holy sun they will indeed meet their eternal maker as they become nothing more than unholy dust in the wandering winds!
Werewolves Rage Against The Hurricane!
When a hurricane falls on the nights of the Moon being 80% of Full or higher you can expect the usual monthly transmutation from human to monster. Werewolves are many times for dangerous during hurricanes or any storm for that matter. They see the weather as an attacking nemesis, and it makes them extremely angry. They will voraciously attack, and eat anything that moves without hesitation! Their rage, and the chaos of the storm may make your religous artifacts less useful as a defense. Certainly holy water shot from your super soaker would be blown about, and diluted by the torrential rains. You’re movement would be impeded by wind, water, flying objects, and unexpected obstacles. Meanwhile the werewolf will plow through anything in it’s path with the same ease as the hurricane itself. Refusing to evacuate makes you vulnerable to death by werewolf, or obtaining the monthly monster curse from them!
Unlike vampires and werewolves, Zombies find themselves tossed about like rag dolls in the wayward winds. Being launched against buildings, cars, and other obstructions causes their rotted flesh to splatter about. The violent rain, and flood waters quickens the decay of their rotting flesh. Many zombies are washed out to sea where they attempt to attack sea life that includes sharks. However the zombie often fails due to being out of their element. Unfortunately those in flooded areas might find a floating zombie to be a most unexpected unpleasant surprise. As you pace about your hip deep flooded home you might feel a bite on your leg that spells the end of your life as you know it. For now you are a member of the cannibalistic living dead!
Hunkering down in a haunted house during a hurricane is a really bad idea! Even if you’re an experienced Ghost Hunter. Such extreme weather conditions create a mega maelstrom of metaphysical energy that all manner of evil entities eat up! There will be a plethora of poltergeist, demonic, and dark spirited activity during heated hurricanes. Graveyards can be especially dangerous with the spontaneous resurrection of zombies, or even reanimated corpses washed from their graves by flood waters. Frightened individuals who didn’t clear out with other evacuees may find themselves a tantalizing target for demonic possession! The Witching Hour through the Devil’s Hour is the worst time to be in the midst of a full fledged hurricane!
Gods, Goddesses, And Practitioners Of Magic
Hurricanes themselves can be caused by factions of Gods fighting among themselves. Primarily Sea Gods. However Gods, and Goddesses, even Goddess Gaia, might create them as a punishment for humankind’s offense of nature, and her metaphysical protectors. In rare cases they can even be the product of top secret technology, lone mad scientists, or a powerful player in the magical arena manipulating Mother Nature for their own perplexing purposes.
Many nature deities are metaphysical in form so they don’t have to even be exposed to the physical weather. However fairies, elves, leprechauns, and other nature helpers are in physical contact with our reality. Thankfully they are protected by Mother Earth, or their patron Gods and Goddesses. No harm can befall them from weather of any sort. For instance a Fairy can flutter about in 150 mph winds without any issue due to a paranormal protective barrier around their bodies. An Elf working to clean up swamps will merrily float upon flood waters until it gently caresses high ground. Benevolent supernatural beings unimpeded by hurricanes are able to save innocent animals, and human lives!
Witches, Warlocks, Wizards, and Sorcerers often look to capitalize on the awesome metaphysical energy surges of hurricanes. This is the time to perform powerful spells, and rituals. Especially in the eye of the hurricane! Powerful practitioners of magic can place protection spells on themselves, and their homes to prevent any ill effects from the destructive abilities of horrifying hurricanes! Even those with little power may find themselves protected by nature deities they hold favor with. Ultimately humans feeling a deep spiritual connection with Mother Earth will mostly likely come out of the stormy shadows unscathed!
