So I live in the tropics and cyclones are a part of life at this time of year. While they can be dangerous and deadly they don't occur all that often and generally they seem to pass by without too much hassle.
We just had a cyclone pass through on the weekend. The damage is not too bad, though quite a few big trees have been blown over and there is plant matter every where. All in all where I live was quite lucky, but I know that the damage 100kms away is much worse. Thankfully it is not a highly populated area.
Anyway the point to this rant is.... If I hear another stupid person tell me they wish it was worse I will clobber them one. Why would anyone wish for greater damage to be caused by a natural disaster?
