Minor update to my previous status from more than a week ago: I am partially considering coming back to the RPing scene here, though not sure how well that's going. Also, I'm not quiting the forums 100%, I just won't be very active here.
If you hear thunder, then that usually means that there will also be rain and lightning.
Some areas might become dangerous as a result because the water will be rising.
In such an event, there will be clamor, as well as sirens ringing to help people in need.
If what I'm saying is true where you live, then it's probably a bad sign of things to come.
