The loss of a loved one can make a person behave in ways they might not otherwise would if the person were still alive. Paranoia from superstition, in certain cases, can be common symptoms of grief, and grief can make a person behave in ways that defy logic and reason.
When one thinks of a haunting, a few things that typically come to mind are mist on a lake with a mansion in the background, or the sight of Norman Bates' big Victorian house with Norman standing at the top of the hill with a kitchen knife in his hand. Stephen Kings' "The Shining," a cursed hotel filled with the ghosts of people who died there, is also a great example.
Rain fell against the glass of my bedroom window. It’d been raining all afternoon. Some first day it was back in New Hampshire — cold, dreary, and familiar.

One could go on forever about how many other similar disasters were happening.
