People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:24

Mt 8:24 There arose a great tempest in the sea. Mark says, "A great storm" (Mr 4:37); Luke, "There came down a storm of wind" (Lu 8:23); the word used by Matthew implies a tornado. The Greek word "seismos" denotes a sudden and violent gust of wind, such as frequently bursts on the lake. All travelers describe the storms as very sudden and violent caused by the cold air that rushes down from the mountains into the heated depression of the lake.
