This is where we post important information about Tornadoes, Bunkers, and Events.
Does your workplace really need to be prepared for the possibility of a tornado? The answer is “Yes.” Tornadoes can occur anywhere and at any time, OSHA states, adding that an average of 800 tornadoes are reported across the nation every year. So, what can employers do to help keep employees safe in the event of a tornado?
Tornado Facts Tornadoes can range in intensity. Wind speeds are measured on the Enhanced Fujita scale, which was implemented in February of 2007: EF0 = 65 – 85 mph winds EF1 = 86 – 110 mph winds EF2 = 111 – 135 mph winds EF3 = 136 – 165 mph winds EF4 = 166 – 200 mph winds EF5 = Over 200 mph winds Tetsuya Theodore “Ted” Fujita (1920-1998) developed the original Fujita Tornado Intensity Scale.
It was too serene. Birds were chirping, fluttering in their usual way somewhere just out of view. Mosquitoes were buzzing. The softly rhythmic but nearly continuous rumble of low and deep thunder was one of the only signs of danger. In front of Justin Hobson, however, history danced in a field.
‘A blessing we all survived’: Residents assess damage from tornadoes and storms; cleanup effort could take months
As Camille McNeill stood in her south Bellevue kitchen Sunday morning, there was nothing between her and the blue sky and puffy clouds above. Her neighbor’s chicken ran around her insulation-coated living room, darting under the couch every time she tried to grab it. Debris blew around her backyard.
Having the right food, medical and other important supplies is crucial for survival in apocalyptic scenarios as well as other emergencies such as flooding, blizzards, earthquakes and other pandemics.
Tornado. Cyclone. Twister. Whatever you prefer to call them, they’re a forced to be reckoned with. But some counties need little reminder of this. Using the Storm Events database from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, weather.com compiled data for each county in the U.S. from 1950 to 2016.
A 12-year-old Australian Shepherd named Duke survived a tornado that tossed him about 1,000 feet. The dog suffered serious injuries, but is expected to survive. A 12-year-old Australian Shepherd is recovering from injuries sustained when an EF2 tornado threw him 1,000 feet from his destroyed home May 24 in Davie County, North Carolina.
Tornadoes are one of Mother Nature’s most destructive forces and can come in all shapes and sizes. While each tornado is unique, there are similarities that can allow tornadoes to be categorized by size, appearance and how they form. Regardless of the type, each and every tornado can be dangerous with destructive winds that could put lives and property in danger.
Dozens of tornadoes and hail the size of grapefruits pummeled parts of the Central Plains on Monday, leaving at least two people injured. WTOP reporter and photographer Dave Dildine snapped stunning photos of the stormscapes. Editor’s note: WTOP reporter and photographer Dave Dildine snapped these photos and filed this report from Wyoming and Nebraska earlier this week.
I’ve been photographing extreme weather for 25 years. After publishing tips on how to photograph lightning here back in March, I was asked to share any tips I have in capturing an award-winning tornado image. So, here I go… Note to reader: Storm chasing and extreme weather photography, as discussed in this article, can be very dangerous.
We take a look at some of the strongest, fastest and costliest tornadoes. There are a few tornado outbreaks each year, but we examine the worst ones. Tornadoes are among the most violent winds on Earth, capable of unthinkable destruction in a matter of seconds.
Doomsdayers have been around since the first Neanderthal rolled a protective boulder in front of his cave. Since the 1950s, preppers have been stocking bug-out shelters with supplies and frightened homeowners have been digging survival shelters. Is a bomb shelter right for your backyard or basement?
Tornadoes are one of several dangers that hurricanes, tropical storms and their remnants can unleash as they move inland. In some cases, dozens of tornadoes have been spawned during some hurricane landfalls in the United States. From 1994 through 2014, two-thirds of all U.S.
With springtime, Texans turn watchful eyes to the sky for rising storm clouds or sudden shifts in winds. Though tornadoes have occurred in all 50 states, Texas is part of the notorious “Tornado Alley” where the often-volatile mix of cool, dry air from the Rocky Mountains mixes with the warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico most commonly meet on the Great Plains to produce the violent storms.Tornadoes have been observed in Texas for centuries.

Ancient cosmic impacts on Mars might have created powerful wind vortices similar to sideways tornadoes, and the whirling winds would have rolled across the Red Planet’s surface like barrels, a new study finds. The streaks that those winds left behind could help reveal details about Mars’ past, the researchers said.
CLOSE Consider adding wind to your worry list if you haven’t already. “Severe thunderstorm winds can be just as strong as EF-1 tornadoes (86-110 mph),” said Anthony Cavallucci, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Morristown. “They are also much more common than tornadoes in East Tennessee.”
A tornado touches down near Three Hills Alberta, and a flurry of footage appears online. But one photo goes viral: a man nonchalantly mowing his lawn as the twister apparently bears down on him. “It looks much closer if you look in the photo, but it was really far away,” the lawnmower man in question, Theunis Wessels, told local media.
An unusual mid-November tornado outbreak in the High Plains in 2015 also lead to some strange tornado damage. An EF-3 tornado near Pampa, Texas, on November 16 drove a corn stalk into the radiator of a truck, according to a photo provided by Steve Kersh, chief meteorologist at KVII-TV in Amarillo, Texas.
A recent decline in the accuracy of tornado warnings is not as alarming as it may appear, weather officials say. Forecasters are doing well with storms that produce strong tornadoes – those that measure EF-2 or higher on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, said Russell Schneider, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.
Editor’s note: May and June are typically peak months for tornadoes in North America. We [The Conversation] asked Penn State meteorology professors Paul Markowski and Yvette Richardson to explain why tornadoes form, how to stay safe if you’re near one and whether climate change is affecting tornado patterns. 1.
YADKIN COUNTY, N.C. — Surveillance video from Courtney Elementary School in Yadkin County shows the moments where an EF2 tornado came ripping through the campus shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday.
