According to scientists, the weight of the average cumulus cloud is 1.1 million pounds! Think about that for a moment. This means that at any given moment, there are millions of pounds of water floating above your head. That’s equivalent to 100 elephants.
That is why disasters like cloud-bursts cause massive destruction in the affected areas. You might wonder, why does such a heavy amount of mass floats above the head, and does not fall down. The reason behind this is science itself. The air below it is even heavier and denser than the clouds, that allows the clouds to float over!
