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.
On may 3rd 1999 a continuous amount of tornadoes hit Oklahoma. This was called the Oklahoma Tornado Outbreak, Oklahoma got hit by 74 tornadoes in 21 hours! Along with the outrageous tornadoes, there are also a lot of droughts at summer time. The longest drought was during the dust bowl. The dust bowl was kind of like a dust storm.
It has been successfully tested and was being implemented on infected bats as of 2015. Bat populations on Prince Edward Island were far larger before White Nose Fungus became more common in Canada as well as the United States. The data for the exact population of bats on P.E.I. could not be located, but in Canada since the predominant increase of White Nose Syndrome in 2010, there have been an estimated 5.7 to 6.7 million bats have died due to the
This is what spoke to me the most about this story. Sometimes, even the smallest choices can end up having a major impact. This can be compared to the Butterfly Effect. The butterfly effect is that a tornado can be caused by the air coming from the flapping of a butterfly’s wings a week before the tornado came. Essentially, it means that a seemingly small and useless action can be the cause of a major disaster or problem.
Antonio Brown did not play in the ensuing playoff game due to his concussion and the Steelers went on to lose. Although Antonio Brown may be fine now that it 's the off-season this is something that will be with him his whole life. Concussions are a very serious issue in sports. Concussions can happen at any level of play from professional to grade school sports. Concussions are also not limited to contact sports, they can occur in any sports.
The north and southbound lanes of Livingston Avenue, are separated by a yellow striped safety zone which is approximately 4 feet wide, 65 feet north of the crash site and tapers out to approximately 9 feet wide, south of the crash site where it transitions into a left turn lane.

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
Recently, on January 7th 2016, there was an earthquake caused by fracking, in Oklahoma, where earthquakes are rare. This particular quake was a 4.8 on the Richter Scale, which is the highest ever recorded. It occurred in the center of the state, was felt all over. Also, within the past week, there have been more than 20 quakes all over the state. in recent years, since 2011, earthquakes have occurred more and more often.
The climate descriptions are in separate categories, which represent the four seasons of the year— winter, spring, summer, and autumn. As well, the weather elements cited in the article demonstrate the effects they have on the meteorological conditions and changes that occur in Texas. The article portrays the climate patterns for the ecological regions of Texas. The major cities are briefly notated within each of the regions. On the other hand, some of the main points that Griffiths and Ainsworth discuss in-depth in One Hundred Years of Texas Weather 1880-1979 are the weather as a whole for the State of Texas and some of the major catastrophes caused by weather conditions that have affected individual cities.
Texas joining the union and became a 28th state in the United States has 6 diffident flags which have flown over it. Spanish, French, Mexican, Republic of Texas, United States, and Confederate States of American and from all these counties form a melting pot of all different types of people who have come to Texas. Texas expands North and South nearly 1,000 miles and also East to west. Some of the largest densest areas in the cities such as Houston, Dallas, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio, where Houston at 2.3 million, Dallas at 1.4 Million, and Austin at 0.9 million make up 3 of the largest cities in the United States. Texas also comes in at 14th largest economy in the World with 6 of the Fortune 500 companies.
Hurricane Joaquin manifested in the Atlantic Ocean on September 27 and made its way to the Eastern United States, constantly growing in size and intensity. The hurricane eventually reached the strength of a category four hurricane with wind speeds up to a 155 mph, only two mph shy from becoming a category five hurricane (Hurricane Joaquin Recap, 2015). Though many meteorologists suspected that the hurricane would make landfall in the mainland United States, it made a drastic turn to Bermuda, but, in turn, sent a low pressure system through all of South Carolina sending down torrential rainfall starting on October 1, 2015 (Hurricane Joaquin Recap, 2015). The rain continued through October 6, 2015, breaking precipitation records throughout South Carolina causing massive flooding in Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, and other surrounding cities. Charleston received 16.33” amount of rain in a period of five days, from October 1 to October 5, while Myrtle Beach received 15.5”, shattering both previous records for rainfall (Wiltgen, 2015).
In a span of seventeen years, from 1980 to 1997, the number of the incarcerated individuals imprisoned due to non-violent drug offenses increased from forty thousand to five hundred thousand (Drugpolicy.org, n.d.). At the start of the decade only 2% of Americans viewed drugs in America as a major issue, but after only nine years, that number grew to an astonishing 64%. The media and politicians contributed to this meteoric rise in such a short time. Television networks and news programs began to cover the negative side effects of drugs that were ignored during the two previous free living decades. Politicians viewed the “War on Drugs” as an opportunity to strengthen their name recognition since the majority of drug related legislature became front page news.
In the website of NASA, the main idea is to inform people what are hurricanes to give a general idea of hurricanes, while the website, Weather Wiz Kids, goes a step further and talks about what you should do to prepare for when a hurricane will strike. For example, in the website, Weather Wiz Kids, it says what costal beach erosion is, and what the difference between a hurricanes and a typhoon, while NASA doesn’t say those things. However, both websites do say some similar things. For example, both websites say that hurricanes are large, swirling storms which produce winds of 74+ mph which can damage buildings and trees. Hurricanes are also categorized by the Saffir-Simpson Scale as shown to the side.
Over the past 150 years there has been 18 hurricanes/tropical storms that have hit nova scotia, Hurricane Juan was the third most recent striking in 2003 before hurricane Juan there was 8 category one hurricanes, one category two ,and 2 category threes, 7 years after hurricane Juan there was a category 4 hurricane and 4 years after that a category 2. Based on the number of years between each hurricane they seem to be becoming more frequent and will continue to happen more often because of global warming and the earth becoming warmer and since the earth is becoming warmer the ocean heats up, Since hurricanes are created from the warm air from the ocean rising and building up, making this giant storm. it will become more frequent due to the more warm air in the oceans building up. On May 22, 2014 a news item was released by environment Canada stating that hurricane season runs from june until november this is because the waters in the atlantic ocean are finally warm enough to start creating tropical cyclones and early that day the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) predicted 8-13 named storms, 3-6 hurricanes and 1-2 major hurricanes. Meteorologists can predict hurricanes based on their seasonal possibilities and then after they 've been formed there able to track them using satellites and Doppler radar and predict where they will make landfall.
