      A tornado, or twister, is a violently rotating column of air that extends between the Earth's surface and a cloud, usually a cumulonimbus cloud. Most tornadoes last for less than ten minutes.   Books with a tornado, tornadoes, or storm chasing. I’m an almost life-long Midwesterner.

James R. McDonald. National Wind Institute. A year perspective Thomas P. Grazulis RFD 2 St. Johnsbury, VT ABSTRACT This paper is an attempt to provide additional insight into the limitations of the current tornado data by viewing the problems across the longest possible time period.

Put the violence and frequency of tornadoes in perspective; Whenever there is a tornado, it is played and replayed in the news cycle for days.

Mass media is used as a way of warning people who live in the area where it is expected to hit. The tornado itself is widely covered and the aftermath, of course.

McDonald], P.E. ABSTRACT Objects and debris picked up and transported by tornado winds range in size from roof gravel to railroad cars.

A maximum in the number of tornado reports was observed between and (44 tornado reports) and another maximum in –10 (56 tornado reports).

The recent increase in the number of tornado reports was attributed to the “availability of relevant sources as well as increased social awareness and advances in communication technology.

A tornado climatology for Finland is constructed from to The climatology consists of two datasets. A historical dataset (–) is largely constructed from newspaper archives and other historical archives and datasets, and a recent dataset (–) is largely constructed from eyewitness accounts sent to the Finnish Meteorological Institute and news reports.

The Fujita scale (F-Scale; / f u ˈ dʒ iː t ə /), or Fujita–Pearson scale (FPP scale), is a scale for rating tornado intensity, based primarily on the damage tornadoes inflict on human-built structures and official Fujita scale category is determined by meteorologists and engineers after a ground or aerial damage survey, or both; and depending on the circumstances, ground.

The diameter of a tornado varies from a few feet to a mile; the rotating winds may attain velocities of to mi (– km) per hr, and the updraft at the center may reach mi per hr. The Enhanced Fujita scale is the standard scale for rating the severity of a tornado as measured by the damage it causes.

A tornado is usually. The book "Tornado" by Betsy Byars is a book about a dog that flew into a boys yard during a tornado. The boy got really fond of the dog very quick. The dad didn't mind it either, just because it was so well behaved. I liked this book because even though it was small it was really intense and great.

Q: How are tornadoes formed. A: Tornadoes are generally formed in a thunderstorm. Thundershowers this violent require a complex mix of environmental conditions but usually include: a) very warm, humid air, b) very cool, dry air to the west and south, c) air to the west trying to replace the warm, moist air (a front moving in), c) upper level (high in the sky) conditions that first hold down.
