    This phrase is frequently heard in weather reports. Sustitute carrying for packing.
    "Muifa (the name of this storm) was still carrying heavy winds, which reached a velocity of 144km per hour."

    Be patient. Not all questions are answered as quickly as this one was. It depends on the content, the context and whether or not we know the answer! All the teachers and native speakers here are volunteers, doing this in our free time. Most questions get answered - eventually!

    Packing is a slang term for wielding, as in a weapon.

    As you know I am a beginner and just two days ago I have joined this forum. Therefore, I did not know too much about it so again sorry. Now I have got all answers to all of my questions. I am very found fond of learning English and I read English newspapers. when i cannot understand any phrase,sentence then i posted that on your forum and after posting i got answer soon but yesterday i posted my question i waited but no answer had been replied to me as soon as bebfore Recently, when I couldn't understand a phrase or a sentence, I posted it here and I got an answer quickly. Yesterday I posted another question but I didn't get an answer as quickly.
    Please see my amendments in red.

    Please remember to capitalise the word "I" all the time. Also make sure you add a space after a full stop or a comma (or any other punctuation mark which appears at the end of a word).

    Construct shorter sentences too to make your posts easier to read.

    Don't worry about the sentence construction too much, but capitalisation and punctuation are important even for beginners!
