As the rain storm hits, flooding becomes an immediate concern. Andre and Jose quickly seek elevated ground and construct a makeshift shelter using available resources. By rationing their supplies and cooperating effectively, they manage to endure the storm and keep their spirits high.

When the wind storm arrives, the friends secure themselves in a sturdy natural formation or a cave. They use their clothing and any available materials to create windbreaks and protect themselves from flying debris. Their quick thinking and calm demeanour help them weather the powerful winds.

As the blizzard rages, the combination of heavy snow and lightning presents a formidable challenge. Andre and Jose huddle together for warmth and use their survival skills to build a snow shelter. They wisely avoid tall objects and open areas to minimize the risk of being struck by lightning.

Faced with a sudden tidal wave, the friends seek higher ground and climb to safety. Their ability to stay level-headed and make swift decisions allows them to evade the destructive force of the wave and find refuge until the waters recede.

As the floodwaters rise and threaten to trigger a mudslide, Andre and Jose move to higher ground, constantly monitoring escape routes and being ready to move quickly if necessary. Their prior knowledge of the area enables them to find safe locations away from potential mudslide paths.

In the face of an impending avalanche, the friends use their knowledge of avalanche safety to quickly locate a sheltered area. They employ their survival training to create air pockets and maintain breathing space if buried under snow. Their preparedness and composure are crucial in their survival.
