How do you find out? Is a warning just letting you know there might be a tornado, or that there WILL be a tornado??
Whats the delay between a warning and the tornado hitting?

Im English. And i love tornadoes 🙂

Oh, and you have a huge oak tree over your home. We have had a couple of tornadoes before, but none have ever hit our home. At the present, we are under a tornado watch which will likely turn into a warning soon since a tornado has been spotted 30 miles away. What do you do when you do not have a basement, and there is a chance of a large tree falling on your home in the event of a Tornado?

Society is seeking to destroy itself and mother nature is striking back from the centuries of abuse we have given her. The authorities, governments, organizations wring their hands and say "how dreadful, we must do something about this" but then turn to solve other problems and invest monies in things such as the war on terrorism. Rather then worrying about how other people see the world and their faith, how about we leave them alone and put in a genuine effort to fix the problems plaguing our Earth! In the end the economy, the different way people view religion, right and wrong and morality; matter not at all when our world is dead, drained of basic resources such as food and oxygen and most of our population lay decimated. Harsh words, and possibly dramatic. Do you honestly believe mother nature is not beginning to strike back and fix the balance? Tsunamis, earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes; the incidence of these things is on the rise- without giving mention to the corrupt state of our governments and the power plays there in, the decline of society and the undermining of humanities faith, whether that be the christian god, buddha or any other faith. Please, does anyone out there see my point of view? You, me, the next door neighbor? Give it 100 years and we’ll be dead so what do we really matter? Humanity is only one species on this Earth, and its only us that says we are the superior beings. The Earth is not for us alone, but for all life. Lets say damn the oil companies, damn the mining companies and all the other big companies that buy our governments and corrupt our civilization for their own ends because if we continue the way we are; your dollar isn’t going to get you a damn thing! Damn the economy and save the environment!

I am 17 and I need to figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life, my career. I wanted to be an Architect, but now I’m second guessing it. I am taking it as an elective at my high school, and its a lot of fun, but I know once i get to college, theres so much more to it than just making up floor plans.
Before Architecture, I wanted to become a Meteorologist. I kinda still do. I have an interest in weather and Natural Disasters(like tornadoes and earthquakes). My mom keeps telling me she can’t picture me in either career. I’m not sure if I can either all so much now I think about it.
So, What career is for me? I like drawing, designing, deciding where things go, music, weather, sports, helping others, nature, the environment, etc. I don’t like fashion and history.
I know for one, that I don’t want to become a nurse or doctor or dentist or vet or related fields. I am like, terrified of needles and stuff like that.
Thankyou for your responses 🙂

I am teaching students about tornadoes. I need some kinds of activity that will show them the conditions (temperature and humidity) of a tornado. Any ideas?

I’m terrified of tornadoes. I think it’s because I’ve never experienced one, and the thought of like being in my house and just watching a giant tornado of doom come toward me; scares the crap out of me.
