F3 is called a severe tornados and the wind speeds are 158-206 miles per hour. There damage is roofs and some walls torn from buildings, heavy trucks lifted from the ground. F4 are called Devastating tornados and there wind speeds are 207-260 miles per hour. There damages are well constructed houses are blown off from foundations. F5 are called incredible tornados and there wind speeds are 261-318 miles per hour.
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.
“Millions of lives were changed in a day by a cruel and wasteful storm” (George W. Bush). George W. Bush said this quote after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Hurricanes are deadly natural disasters that affect people every year. They have a very complex way of forming, and each storm is distinguished by its characteristics. After hurricanes, people and the environment are deeply harmed.
They come out of the storm and raid nearby towns. When the storm ends, they disappear without a trace. They leave with all the goods and people they stole and kidnapped. On a particular stormy night, a young boy named Jonathan Davis and his best friend Maurice Van Strewman were outside helping people set their homes for the storm. Ships were supposed to be coming in for the storm so they didn’t get sucked into a maelstrom.
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.
Nineteen states in the United States became a vast dust bowl (Ganzel). Many homes became uninhabitable because of how terrible the dust storms were. Massive drifts of dirt buried pastures, grazing lands, and barnyards, piled up in front of homestead doors, came through window cracks, and sifted down from ceilings (Dust). “Some 850 million tons of topsoil blew away in 1935 alone. ‘Unless something is done,’ a government report predicted ‘the western plains will be as arid as the Arabian Desert.’” (The Dust).
For example, when Jess, Eddie and Sam were in the abandon cabin they experienced an earthquake. The reader can sense the frightfulness they must have endured as trees tumbled down everywhere around them in the forest. The author also describes in detail how the heat from the blast felt so hot that every breath was like inhaling fire. Thankfully, Jess figured out that if she tucked her shirt over her mouth she could breath. This intrigues us to read on as the reader wants more details on what she is going through and how she survived.
Once upon a time when I was 8 years old. It was a pitch-black night with bone-chilling winds. I went to an horrifying Haunted House In Los Angeles California where the people say it’s the most paranormal haunted house in the city. Right when I went in, there where people gripping my arm and glaring at me and all of a sudden, boom someone grabbed my legs and a disturbing mortals with the most nerve racking costume crawled on me. I went screaming out and crying with a terrified look on my face.
Similarly a single paragraph after Justine’s death is revealed to Victor by Elizabeth through letter, there is a lightning storm. “For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noisy way beneath” (Shelley, 108). Here the lightning is even portrayed as dancing, using personification Mary hints that there are more to the lightning than just a natural occurrence. Finally once his beloved Elizabeth dies on his wedding night he states “I rushed towards the window, and drawing a pistol from my bosom, fired; but he eluded me, leaped from his station, and running with the swiftness of lightning, plunged into the lake.” Victor compares his nemesis to lightning using a metaphor.
Newton Prince was a African American businessman. Men came to his house yelling “fire, fire”, he asked if it was a house on fire, they said no something even better. Newton went out to the massacre and met people that had “clubs, buckets, bags,snowballs,and sticks”. A lot of people were yelling “fire” and so he could see how it could be confusing for actual command. There are also many sticks that we 're hitting the bayonet and most of them could have been set off because of that.
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.
One day, Percy Jackson, age 15, and Athena, age 14, were doing a project for science. The T.V. came on with an alert that there was a tornado 500 miles away, heading their way. SO, they finished their project, then went to get a mattress, food, pillow and something to drink. They took it down to the basement to get ready for the tornado.
Imagine being outside in a gigantic thunderstorm with wind speeds up to 300 mph. Suddenly, violent, rotating columns of air extend from the sky, reaching all the way down to the ground. The funnel shaped twisters starts destroying large buildings and homes alike. They uproot trees, and vehicles race through the air for miles. These channels of intense wind are called tornados.
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.
You Must Read This Book I related to Jon Krakauer’s book, Into Thin Air, when the deadly storm caused heroic guides and clients to quickly rally whoever they could to save themselves and nearby clients in a safe and efficient manner. On Saturday morning before Memorial Day in 2012, my home was struck by lightning during a fairly calm storm. There was no warning at all, just like the dreadful blizzard on Mount Everest. I had to recover from a blinding light and ground shattering explosion to realize my family needed to get out of the house. I ran to my parents’ room where my sister already held my mom’s hand and my dad collecting his cell phone and fire department radio to report a lightning strike.
