The United States is essentially the world's capital of tornadoes, because of the fluke geography. Tornadoes most often happen in the tornado alley, but they can happen anywhere. Tornados can happen at any time of the year. Opening windows or hiding under a bridge during a tornado, can be really dangerous. Tornado seasons cannot be forecasted.
Category 1 hurricanes can throw objects around and cause rough damage. Category 2 hurricane winds range from 96-110 mph. It can throw around debris so fast that it poses a threat to humans and animals. Category 3 hurricane winds range from 111-130 mph and drag homes off their base. They also cause extensive flooding.
The Joplin Tornado was a very extreme F-5 tornado that killed and injured many people. To begin, the articles "The Evil Swirling Darkness" and the article "A Storm Chaser 's First-Hand Account of the Joplin Tornado" both give very different accounts of what happened the day of the tornado. One example of a difference between the two articles is how the second article talks a lot about how after the tornado had finished, there were no emergency responders that came to help the people who had experienced the tornado. The second article talks about this towards it 's end. Another difference between the two articles is that the storm chaser article talks about pulling people out from the rubble after the tornado took place.
INTRODUCTION As far as the world knows, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, flood, fire, etc, are the most dangerous and popular disasters which causes huge damage to mankind. But, blizzards are also disasters which causes loss of life and property similar to any other disaster. Blizzards are most common disaster in the North Eastern countries. They are nothing heavy and ferocious winter storms along with strong wind of about 40 miles per hour. Blizzard can last for two hours.
The tornado warnings were on TV. The wind was picking up, and the lightning bolts started flashing. There were great rolls of thunder. The house was shaking and the trash was blowing away outside. Then our family had to go through something we had never experienced before.
Then beginning on May 9th 1934 a strong two day dust storm removed massive amounts of Great Plains top soil in one of the worst storms of the Dust Bowl. The dust clouds blew all the way to Chicago where dirt fell like snow. Two days later on May 11th the same storm reached cites in the east such as Buffalo, Boston, New York City and Washington D.C. That winter red snow fell on New England. On April 14th 1935 known as Black Sunday twenty of the worst Black Blizzards occurred throughout the Dust Bowl, causing extensive damage and turning the day to night. It was so bad that people could not see five feet in front of them at certain points.
The devastation of hurricane Irma was wide-spread and will take years to fully recover from. The total damage Hurricane Irma caused is calculated to be around $100 billion. The damage ranged from destruction of houses and building to 6.8 million people being without electricity (O’Hara, Kristy). The storm caused 38 casualties in the Caribbean and 34 in Florida. Irma flooded the entire area, leaving some places with hip-high water; buildings were lost, and caused destruction to anything that stood in the way.
In the poem, Wright uses two main specific symbols to make readers to understand the poem. The first symbol is the windowless first-floor copy room. “Windowless” illustrates unsafety and vulnerability of the room. It implies how easily the room can be affected by the wind or tornado. As it used to be a place where people had normal, happy lives, now that it is damaged, Wright understands the power of the “tornado.” The second symbol is tornado or great wind, which depicts immigrants or settlers to local area.
over 80% of all intense hurricanes originate from African easterly waves, intense hurricanes are responsible for more than 70% of destruction caused by tropical cyclones in the United States, an understanding is needed of the physical mechanisms for these observed variations of intense hurricane activity.

This devastation occurred on May 7, 1840 (Hall, 2014). Tornadoes create large amounts of damage and are deadly to people if they are not prepared properly. To begin, there are many causes of tornadoes. A tornado is a dangerous rotating column of air stretching from a thunderstorm cloud to the ground. Before they occur, a thunderstorm has to hit.
Just like in the “Night of The Twisters” we have tornados here in Iowa two. A tornado is violently rotating column of air that spins while in contact with both the surface of the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud. Many parts of this disaster are common to the Mapleton Iowa tornado. The Mapleton Iowa tornado happened on April 9th, 2011. Mapleton Iowa is located in the western part of Iowa.
These channels of intense wind are called tornados. In an average year, 1000 tornadoes are reported nationwide. On the afternoon of Friday, April 14th, a supercell thunderstorm in Texas created multiple tornados, one being a mile wide. The tornado of April 14th caused EF3 damage just outside the town of Dimmitt, Texas. Meteorologists say that this twister demolished a metal building, which is why it got the rating it
The city also experiences activity from the Queen Charlotte-Fairweather fault system. This fault system has caused large earthquakes in the past. Between the North and pacific plates and the Queen Charlotte-Fairweather fault system Juneau has a high risk of serious earthquakes. Juneau frequently has multiple earthquakes a year. Last year Juneau went through over fourteen earthquakes and this year the city has only had six (Earthquake Track, 2015).
These plants were both very beautiful but there are a lot of natural disasters that destroy these plants. There are a lot of natural disasters in Oklahoma. One of the natural disasters are tornadoes. Since Oklahoma is in the heart of tornado alley, Oklahoma gets hit by tornadoes very often. On may 3rd 1999 a continuous amount of tornadoes hit Oklahoma.
