Tornadoes

I just felt in my heart, with all the devastation going on throughout the midwestern U.S. with tornadoes, to do a post about my feelings and tornadoes. My prayers are going out to all the people who were affected by these natural disasters. They are trying to recover from extensive damage and loss of friends and family. The area in which this has been taken place in is called "Tornado Alley" between the Rocky and Appalachian Mountains and a tornado can occur at any given time. Nobody deserves to witness any type of disasters, whether they are natural or man-made. Times are so hard these days as it is and to lose what you have is very hard to replace.

According to Wikipedia, "a tornado is a violent, dangerous, rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud." They form from the clouds that cause thunderstorms turning to supercell storms from rotating air that causes the clouds to form a funnel shape that drops to the ground and moves at violent wind speeds. They mainly occur in spring and summer months. This is why so many tornado breakouts are occuring now. With climate change it can worsen and be more destructive in comings years. Tornadoes are very unpredictable and disasterous. I just hope they continue to work on ways to get a stronger prediction to save people's lives.
