Tornadoes
How does a tornado form?

Most tornadoes form from thunderstorms. You need warm front, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and cool, dry air from Canada. When these two air masses meet, they create instability in the atmosphere.

Historical Examples

1.Worcester, Mass. - June 9, 1953

2. Tupelo, Miss./Gainesville, Ga. - April 5 and 6, 1936

3."Tri-State Tornado" - March 18, 1925

All 3 of these tornadoes were outbreaks. Tri-State tornado lasted 7 hrs, Worcester lasted 4:25 pm to 5:43 pm, and Tupelo tornado lasted 12 to 16 hrs.

Impact on Human Life

Go to a place with no windows. Stay away from areas that are likely to have flying objects. If you're outside go in a ditch and protect your head and neck by covering them with your arms and legs. Also get a first aid kit and bring a flashlight, water bottles, and radio.
