    Tornado Alley is locate in the central part of the United States extending from Texas to South Dakota and Iowa and covering small portions of a few other states. Tornado Alley gets its name from. Research materials on tornado proofing buildings Computer with Internet access Procedures 1. Review with your students what they have learned about tornadoes. Your discussion should include a description of what a tornado is like, what kind of damage a tornado can do to homes and other structures, and how a tornado is formed. Size: KB.

    Wind measuring instruments are destroyed by tornadoes, although according to reliable estimates, their winds can exceed miles per hour. Flying at those speeds, pieces of straw can penetrate wood. According to most scientists, the top wind speeds in the strongest tornadoes are . As Polk County emergency management officials continued damage assessment and recovery efforts Thursday after a deadly tornado ripped through the area, preliminary information from the National.

      The wind speed s (in miles per hour) near the center of a tornado can be modeled by s = 93 log d + 65 Where d is the distance (in miles) that the tornado travels. In , a tornado travelled miles through three states. Estimate the wind speed near the tornado's center. I put in my calculator 93 log (+65) or 93 log , but I don't get the right answer.   The function S(d) = 93log(d) + 65 related to the speed of the wind, S, in miles per hour, near the center of a tornado to the distance that the tornado travels, d, in miles. a) If a tornado travels a distance of 50 miles, calculate its wind speed near its center, rounded to two decimal places. b) A tornado has sustained winds of around mph.

Tornadoes occur everywhere in the United States, and each region of the nation has its own tornado season. Tornadoes have crossed mountains.

Some have lasted more than an hour, scouring the earth with mile-per-hour winds, and some have carried automobiles a half-mile and leveled sturdy by: A tornado typically travels in a northeasterly direction with a speed of 20 to 40 mi (32–64 km) per hr, but tornadoes have be reported to move in a variety of directions and as fast as 73 mi ( km) per hr—or to hover in one place.

The length of a tornado's path along the ground varies from less than one mile to several hundred. Quotes Tagged “Tornado”. “In the spring of her twenty-second year, Sumire fell in love for the first time in her life. An intense love, a veritable tornado sweeping across the plains—flattening everything in its path, tossing things up in the air, ripping them to shreds, crushing them to bits.

Book 12 A tornado is heading towards Pete's house, so he and his family takes refuge down in their cellar. As the menacing storm passes, Pete discovers a dog that has been blown to their house by the tornado.

So they name the dog Tornado due to the way he was brought to them. Pete chooses the name and the two become best friends/5. The tornado tracked south of the airport tower and took down a few more trees before dissipating west of Highway The weather.

Attachment H Tornado The Hazard Nature of the Hazard A tornado consists of violent whirling wind accompanied by a funnel-shaped cloud. Usually, tornadoes are associated with severe weather conditions such as thunderstorms and hurricanes.

Tornadoes are very destructive. The average width of a tornado is to yards. Their path may extend up to.

Tornado by Betsy Byars; This book was fantastic. I loved how each chapter is broke down with a worksheet for question and answers.

I felt that this really helped us retain what we were reading. The story is about a dog and his friend, a young boy, that meet during a tornado, hence naming the dog Tornado. The boy develops a great bond with Tornado. a tornado can happen. Over 1, tornadoes are reported annually nation-wide, and as our tornado detection systems improve, more are being reported each year.

However, sometimes tornadoes will develop in areas in which no tornado watch or warning is in effect, so stay alert for changing weather conditions. What are tornadoes, and what causes them?File Size: 64KB. As heavy, wind-driven rain began to fall from the inky, greenish-black clouds, Breecher ran to the house to fetch his son a coat.

The wind erratically shifted, gusting from southeast to northwest with spasmodic intensity. The tornado struck just as Breecher reappeared at the door. The AprilSuper Outbreak affected 13 states across the eastern United States, from the Great Lakes region all the way to the Deep South.

In all, tornadoes were documented from this event, of which 95 were rated F2 or stronger on the Fujita scale and 30 were F4 or F5. Aside from all the castastrophic damage they left behind, the.

Dorothy remarked “I can’t go back the way I came.” This was because the wind pushed one direction, toward progress. Communism and other social movements of Baum’s day often used the theme of upward progression from a spiral or whirlwind. This spiral theme first got its. Tornado wind speeds are based on damage.

Ground crews survey the damage after the tornado to try and determine how strong the tornado was. This article describes tornado occurrence and formation as products of instability within the Earth’s air masses and wind systems.

Wind speeds and destructiveness are discussed with special reference to the Enhanced Fujita Scale of tornado intensity. A major whirlwind (such as a tornado) is formed from supercell thunderstorms (the most powerful type of thunderstorm) or other powerful storms.

When the storms start to spin, they react with other high altitude winds, causing a funnel to spin. A cloud forms over the funnel, making it visible.

Minor whirlwind. Both observations (of real tornadoes), computer simulations, and laboratory studies (in tornado vortex chambers) have shown that the “surface roughness”, i.e., the measure of how disrupted the wind near the ground is by objects such as dirt, rocks, hills, trees, and even houses, can either increase or decrease the wind speeds in a tornado.

The tornado continued to snap trees and damage outbuildings on its way northeast, scattering debris a quarter mile downwind. The tornado damaged the roof of a home and did porch, deck, and roof damage to a neighboring residence, plastering the east side of the home with insulation.

The tornado that plowed a wide swath of death and destruction through Joplin, Mo., on Sunday unleashed winds of up to miles per hour, federal forecasters said yesterday. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's preliminary analysis ranks the twister as an F4, the second-highest rating on Author: Climatewire.

Books with a tornado, tornadoes, or storm chasing. I’m an almost life-long Midwesterner. Part of my experiencing growing and living here among the silos, corn fields, and rolling hills has been learning to be prepared for storm weather.

However, as has happened with the aptly named Tornado before, the weather did its best to ruin the occasion. We first see Tornado approaching Retford where it was due to take water.

This F3 tornado (A3 on the outbreak map at right) was the first of a dozen tornadoes documented by scientists in the field on May 3. The same storm later produced an F5 tornado in Newcastle, Moore, and Del City, OK.

The photo was taken from inside one of three VORTEX mobile mesonet vehicles. Tornadoes produce winds that can exceed those of the most powerful hurricanes, but in a very concentrated area. These wind speeds can top miles per hour and cause utter devastation. Meteorologists use the Enhanced Fujita scale to estimate the winds produced by tornadoes, based on the damage left in their wake.Most violent tornadoes are formed from powerful thunderstorms known as supercells.

Some sign of a coming tornado are a light rain, then heavier rain and rain mixed with hail. Tornadoes usually occur during the spring and early summer. Tornadoes usually lasts only a few minutes, but they are very intense.

Their wind speeds range from 18 to m/s.Wind resisTanCe (Tornados and hurriCanes) In most areas of the United States using IBCthe earthquake loading will be more critical than wind. But wind loads should be checked, and more empha-sis today is being put on designing structures to withstand tornado and hurricane.
