Wind can be influenced by human activity. Chicago, Illinois, is nicknamed the “Windy City.” After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed the city, city planners rebuilt it using a grid system. This created wind tunnels. Winds are forced into narrow channels, picking up speed and strength. The Windy City is a result of natural and manmade winds.
