Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Storm Comparisons Hurricanes Tornados Thunderstorms -They can be up to 600 miles across.-Have strong winds spiraling inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. -Each hurricane lasts for over a week, moving 10-20 miles per hour over the open ocean. -On a hot summer day the surface of the Earth is heated by the sun (radiation). -Energy is then transferred from the Earth to the air just above the surface through the process of conduction. -Tornadoes are associated with large (supercell) thunderstorms that grow to over 40,000 feet.-A column of warm humid air will begin to rise very quickly. -The damage caused by a hurricane is measured by the, Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale -A tornado is a violent rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. -The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of up to 300 mph. -They can destroy large buildings, uproot treesand hurl vehicles hundreds of yards. -They can also drive straw into trees. -Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide to 50 miles long. They are all major catastrophic events. These two catastrophic events are storms. Hurricanes and tornadoes both have really strong winds that cause a spiral effect. -In the United Sates, tornadoes are normally common in Tornado Alley and some other places. -Thunderstorms normally have lightning strike in the sky.-Lightning is a bolt of electricity in the sky. Both catastrophic events can cause major desruction.
