Tornadoes are a force of nature that should not to be messed with. They are incredibly dangerous and unpredictable. Tornadoes have the power to entirely level massive structures in one fowl swoop, without ever leaving a single part standing. Tornadoes are most common in the U.S. and warrant a serious problem for the health and safety of its citizens.
Tornadoes are a deadly force of nature. They cause massive destruction and death. “Tornadoes are the most violent of all atmospheric storms.” (www.nssl.noaa.gov 1) As displayed by this information, there is no doubt that tornadoes are powerful and dangerous. “In a worst case scenario, tornadoes can reach speeds of 300+ mph, can cause incredible damage, level buildings, hurl cars through the sky like missiles, lift trees out of their roots, and rip even the sturdiest buildings to shreds along with taking countless lives.” Tornadoes are no force of nature that should be underestimated. Within a matter of seconds, a tornado can obliterate an entire community, leaving hundreds of families without the basic necessities for life.
The method of classifying the strength of tornadoes is by a special scale. “The Fujita, or F scale is the method of categorizing tornadoes by wind speed and the amount of damage they can cause. The F scale begins at F0 (weakest tornado that will cause little to no damage) all the way to F5 (Strongest tornado that can potentially flatten an entire town)” The system in place may work, but still, countless lives are taken by their ignorance of the severity of the storm. Improving the scale and defining their effects with more accuracy can better inform people of the danger they’re in. on top of that, creating public service announcements on tornadoes to effectively and efficiently inform viewers of the potential threat may also save lives.
Tornadoes are sporadic, unpredictable and occur rather suddenly on top of occurring frequently in some parts of the U.S. “Tornado Alley is a nickname invented by the media for a broad area of relatively high tornado occurrence in the central U.S.” (www.nssl.noaa.gov 2) This helps add to the information given by displaying just how frequent they occur. “In terms of absolute tornado counts, the United States leads the list, with an average of over 1,000 tornadoes recorded...
