Tornadoes

Introduction:

Facts. A tornado is defined as a violently rotating column extending from a thunderstorm
to the ground. The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind
speeds of two hundred and fifty miles per hour or more. Damage paths can be in excess of
one mile wide and fifty miles long. In an average year, eight hundred tornadoes are
reported nationwide, resulting in eighty deaths and over one thousand five hundred
injuries.

Types Of Tornadoes. The average tornado is usually split up into categories based on the
strength of the tornado. Most tornadoes, about sixty nine percent (69%), are considered
weak, which means they usually last between one minute and ten minutes, have winds less
that one hundred and ten miles per hour, and the percent of deaths that occur during these
is less than five percent. Strong tornadoes, about twenty nine percent (29%), may last
about twenty minutes, have winds between one hundred and ten and two hundred and five
miles per hour, and the percent of deaths that are found are about thirty percent of all
tornado deaths. The last category for tornadoes is violent ones. With these comes winds
greater than two hundred and five miles per hour, they can last about an hour, and have
seventy percent of all deaths from tornadoes.

Variations. Some variations of tornadoes are that they can be found in the early stages of
rapidly developing thunderstorms. This type of tornado is most common along the range of
the Rocky Mountains, the Plains, and the Western States. Tornadoes may appear nearly
transparent until dust and debris are picked up. Occasionally, two or more tornadoes may
occur at the same time.

Another type of tornado is known as a waterspout. This is a weak tornado that forms over
warm water. They are most common along the Gulf Coast and southeastern states. In the
western United States, they occur with cold late fall or late winter storms, during a time
when you least expect it to develop. They occasionally move inland becoming tornadoes that
can cause a great deal of damage and many injuries.

Average Tornado. The average tornado moves from southwest to northeast, but they have been
known to move in any direction. The average forward speed is about thirty miles per hour
but can vary from that to seventy before it really gets going.

Frequency Of Tornadoes. Tornadoes can occur at any time of the year. In the southeastern
states, peak tornado occurrence is March through May, while peak months in the northern
states are during the summer months. They are most likely to occur between three and nine
o'clock p.m. but have been known to occur at all hours of the day or at night.

Where Tornadoes Come From:
Energy. Tornadoes come from the energy released in a thunderstorm. As powerful as they
are, tornadoes account for only a tiny fraction of the energy in a thunderstorm. What
makes them dangerous is that their energy is concentrated in a small area, perhaps only a

    the fire Late one Wednesday night in May, my girlfriend and I spotted some smoke and could see lava-like fire coming from the Jemez Mountains. We knew right away that it was a forest fire, but did not know how serious it was. We drove to my house to ask my dad what was happening in and around the Atomic City. He didn’t know the details of the fire, so we turned on the TV to get some information about it. Every channel was talking about the “Cerro Grande” fire that had started from a prescribed b

    Impact of Hurricanes in Florida IMPACT OF HURRICANES IN FLORIDA INTRODUCTION According to the National Hurricane Center, a hurricane releases heat energy at a rate of 50 trillion to 200 trillion watts, which is equivalent to the energy from exploding 10 megaton bombs every 20 minutes. With such strength, it is no wonder why these natural disasters have such large destructive impacts on the environment. Furthermore, hurricanes are of extreme importance to Florida, since they have historically pla

    George Berkeley existence of matter Magregoir Simeon July 31, 2000 Hume, Kant and the 18th Century Paper Topic #3 George Berkeley held that all the qualities of the object depend of the mind. Since objects have stable and regular existence, the mind they depend on must be divine rather than human (Immaterialism). In Berkeley’s view, therefore, the existence of a divine mind follows directly from the commonsense belief that physical objects exist when no one perceives them “it is but to look into

They were beginning to take note and realize how cruel it actually was. Finally, in 1820, there was a minority of congressmen that rose up and took a stand.

    Tornado A tornado is a violent windstorm usually characterized by a twisting, funnel shaped cloud that is caused by a thunderstorm or a hurricane. It is produced when a cool air mass meets a warm air mass and forces the warm air mass to rise over the cool air mass very rapidly. Most of the damage from a tornado is a result of high wind velocity and wind blown debris. Most tornadoes occur during the months of March through August, but they can occur during any time of the year. They also seem to
