A believer said: this is like the word of the tyrants: the tribe of Aad: they said similar words of the self conceit.
One of the believers said: God punishes the tyrants by the violent storms: because unlike the quick abrupt earthquake, the hurricane comes to them from faraway .. they watch it and can't do anything against such winds.
Quran 41: 15, which means:
(15. As for ‘Aad, they waxed proud in the land [over God’s apostles and over those believing in them] without [having any] right [against the believers],
and they said: “Who is more powerful than we are? [Therefore, we subdue any who defame our religion and revile our gods]”
[So God said]: Did they not see that God, Who created them, is more powerful than they are? [So had He willed, He could have terminated them in one minute.]
And they went on denying Our signs.
[Then God – be glorified - told about the way in which they were terminated, and He said:]
16. So We loosed against them a furious wind [: storms] for [several] ominous days [in the time of bitter coldness], to let them taste the chastisement of disgrace in the life of the World. And the chastisement of the Next Life will, surely, be more degrading, and they will not be helped [: none will save them from the punishment.])

Although I think, this wind may decrease in intensity, or not!?
They watch it while it is still in Africa.
