i have a writing project i need to do and its about tornadoes. I don’t know what is important about tornadoes after they hit a place.
Do Tornadoes come in the fall time ?
I am completely paranoid about tornadoes. I kind of see hurricanes as one big, huge, strong severe thunderstorm. Tornadoes spawn from severe thunderstorms. And with Hurricane Irene being predicted to hit North Carolina, I was wondering are tornadoes very probable in hurricanes? More so than summer thunderstorms? .. And if you want to answer another question, how bad do you think Irene will hit the Greenville, North Carolina and surrounding area? Your comments are appreciated!
I enjoy reading about historical weather events, and have been focusing on tornadoes lately. Please give me your recommendations on any news books on large historical tornadoes.
Can two tornadoes develop from the same storm be spinning in opposite direction? I would just like to know if it is possible.
Has there been any reports issued about hurricane Irene like Irene producing a tornado, answer your best please. Im asking this cause i am Horrified about tornadoes and i want to get prepared in case of irene tornado. I’ve looked closely on the predicted path of irene and, Providence – RI is going to have eye of the storm when it hits CT, MA, RI
Its warm and humid outside but its getting cloudy. The wind is picking up rapidly and i live in Mass. I heard that a tornado touched down in New York but i don’t know what conditions were like there. Its in mid 80′s here without the breeze but every now and again the wind will pick up and die down. There is a HUGE line of storms moving in East and i was wondering is this possible weather for tornadoes to form? Thanks
I live in the Highlands of Scotland, at the moment we are due to get very stormy weather due to ex hurricane katia tomorrow night/Monday morning. I just read on a weather website that katia could also form tornadoes in the uk. I am now very worried! I am 23 and a mum so please don’t make fun of me for worrying for myself & my 4 year old, I have never experienced something like this before! Reasurance would be great. Anyone with info about katia please post thank you
I live in southwestern Ontario which was battered by severe thunderstorms, great show put on by Mother Nature! Anyways, my area was upgraded from a tornado watch to a tornado warning. We didn’t bother running down to our basement only because there wasn’t any hail falling in our area. However, we were glued to our television for local weather reports/updates and all. Anyways, I know it’s much wiser to go to the basement because a tornado warning is only issued if one is imminent and/or spotted on the ground. So were we being stupid for ignoring the warning because there was no hail? We just figured hail needs to be present before a tornado might strike. So my question is….
HAVE TORNADOES EVER FORMED WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF HAIL OR DOES HAIL HAVE TO BE PRESENT?
*No tornado occurred in my area just in case you’re wondering : ) Just an amazing thunder and lightning storm Mother Nature put on to watch! Thanks for any input you give! : )
Or is there no difference? I know that >90% of all tornadoes are F0 or F1, but Hurricane Irene is moving into my area,(southwestern CT) and a tornado watch has been issued. How powerful are these tornadoes compared with others?
I live in NY state, and I saw on the Weather Channel that the hurricane may bring tornadoes to NY, NJ, DE, and surrounding states. How does that happen? How could the tornado produce tornadoes for this area and do you think it’s likely it’ll happen?
And I meant to write, "How could the hurricane produce tornadoes?"
Just wondering if there are any towns in Texas that have never had tornadoes (at least for a long while) or find it rare to experience one.
If there is a loving God, why does he permit earthquakes, droughts, floods, tornadoes, and other disasters?
If there is a loving God, why does he permit – much less create – earthquakes, droughts, floods, tornadoes, and other natural disasters which kill thousands of innocent men, women, and children every year?
i am on vacation in Colorado now and i heard there are some tornadoes here. and i want to know if that’s true and if it is, how big can the tornadoes get?
You know the ones. They stand out in the street reporting risking life and limb while the winds are howling, and the rain is gushing down on their TV issued rain slickers/umbrellas. While their pants legs are whipping around, they stand there holding onto their slicker hoods/umbrellas for dear life, while cars are just missing hitting them. It’s like they live for hurricanes/tornadoes, tsunamis etc. All of them want to do a more crazier stunt act than the next TV station for higher ratings.
Earthquakes you have no warning. Tornadoes you have a small warning. Hurricanes you have days warning, although you know more when the storm approaches.
I saw this word at the bottom of a report on tornadoes in Massachussets: 호ᅵ오리바람비해
. And why have deaths from tornadoes declined over the same period?
What kind of change in weather has contributed to the increase??
I live in eastern Canada where Tornadoes are quite rare (although they do occur every once and awhile), but I am looking to go on vacation to Virginia & West Virginia in March and wanted to know the likelihood of encountering Tornadoes while I’m down there.

About a week ago, America was Hit by Really Nasty tornadoes. And then Yesterday, New Zealand was hit too! What about Australia, should we be worried about tornadoes?
My grandparents told me that the Indians cursed the Americans with tornadoes, after they stole all their land. True or False?
Whenever there’s a natural disaster he blames gays (Katrina), lack of Christian belief (Japanese earthquake and tsunami, Indonesian tsunami), or something to do with god. What is his explanation for the tornadoes in the bible belt and the recent deadly storms?
Then again, the tornadoes only hit USA in a few states.
(Sorry if I got the actual date wrong. End of the world predictions are false to me.)
My mom wants to move to Tennessee. she has some teacher friends who retired there that really enjoy it, and a few others that say they are thinking of moving there.
she likes that there are no property taxes, cost of living is lower, and they can get a really nice house for less than what we can get one elsewhere.
I was looking around and a few places seem nice… According to the Neighborhood Scout website that talks about crime in an area… Erin is a safe area with lower crime than where we live now (and where we live now there is almost none.) as is Dover (in middle Tennessee near the Kentucky border)
My main concern though, is natural disasters. Where we live now we don’t get Tornadoes or major floods, or hurricanes or earthquakes.
I know Tennessee is supposedly big for Tornadoes and flooding, and I hear there is a fault line that can cause almost as big of a quake as they’re expecting in California one day. So I don’t know how safe it would be to move there.
Is there a way to find out how many tornadoes, quakes and other natural disasters effect the area a year (especially around Dover/Erin and other parts of the northern half of Tennessee)?
Cause I really am anxious about the idea of moving there if there is a lot of danger from Tornadoes or quakes and such. I have a phobia of tornadoes and quakes especially.
