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.
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.
And he rode them VERY well. And people called him “the wonder of the west.” One fateful day Pecos Bill got tired of riding broncos and wanted to ride something will a little more spirit, He wanted to ride a tornado. Not just any tornado mind you, he wanted a twirling terrible tornado. So he went to Kansas to catch a tornado. He waited and waited, then the moment came.
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
One of the things that makes hail so damaging to roofing in Frisco Texas is the size of the hail. The hail ranges from dime size to softball size hail. The roof does indeed provide great protection in those and many other situations. In short the frequency in which a roof needs to be replaced is mostly dependent on the amount and size of hail that comes in severe weather. When that severe weather comes along, our need of safety climbs to the very
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. Livingston Avenue is a heavily traveled road in unincorporated western Hillsborough County, which functions as a collector roadway and runs predominantly north and south. In the area of the crash, Livingston Avenue runs from Bearss to the south and County Line Road to the north. In the area of the crash it is primarily a residential area. In the area of the crash, the roadway is composed of asphalt and the southbound traffic lane is bordered by a solid white fog line and grass.
Hurricane Gert was a large tropical cyclone that caused extensive flooding throughout Central America and Mexico in September 1993. It originated over the southwestern Caribbean Sea and briefly attained tropical storm strength before crossing Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Yucatán Peninsula. Once over warm water in the Bay of Campeche, Gert grew into a Category 2 hurricane and made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The cyclone quickly weakened to a depression over the rugged terrain and eventually dissipated over the Pacific Ocean. Gert 's broad wind circulation produced heavy rain across Central America, flooding property and crops.
Here at the University of Florida, the field of wind engineering is a subject to which a lot of research and manpower is dedicated, particularly concerning hurricanes and the large wind loads associated with them. These powerful storms are generally associated with the eastern and gulf coasts of North America, but they can and do form elsewhere. Hawaii, surrounded by the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean, is not typically associated with hurricane activity, but in September of 1992 the island state was struck by Hurricane Iniki. Within a lifespan of a little more than a week, Iniki was able to completely change the relationship Hawaii had with Hurricanes by battering the islands with strong winds and exposing the complacency fostered by years of mild hurricane seasons. In the years to come, this storm was to serve as the basis for Hawaii’s push to better prepare for potential storms and avoid another disaster of this magnitude.
Which then, the moisture in the dirt combines in the air, and seems like it is chasing the warm air around in a circle. The warm and cold air them form a small, sort of tornado that picks up the dirt that is from said baseball field, and then making a dust devil.
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.
Florida experiences more thunderstorms than anywhere else in the US. This is due to the state being surrounded by water on three sides and this water provides the moisture necessary to feed thunderstorm development. The clashing east and west sea breezes and the layer of moist, warm air in Florida provide the required final ingredients. Tornados however, tend to develop in the Central Plains region. This is because, in the spring, there is warm, humid surface air with an overlay of cooler, drier air that produces an unstable atmosphere (Ahrens 2015, p.313).
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.
Katrina caused 125 million worth of damage. Katrina all started with heavy rains and flooding in Florida. Water vapor is the “fuel” for a hurricane. Because it releases the “latent neal” heat of condensation to form clouds and rain, warming the surrounding air. Then the hurricane begins to form.
Swish, drop, wish those are the sound of a horrible storm that will blow you away. A wet storm that happened in Galveston, Texas in the Gulf of Mexico. To begin with, this story is about a wet storm that happens to be a circular is built with wind, rain, and power. A hurricane can reach winds to about 155 mph and only starts if it is by or on wet areas. The hurricane can destroy anything in it’s path and will not slow down until the wind and storm cools down.
