Two very dangerous Natural Disasters are hurricanes and tornadoes. Tornadoes and hurricanes are not to be played around with, you can get hurt very badly. You should stay in a safe place when one is occurring or evacuate the premises. Try to alert other people when you hear one coming. Also, watch the news to see where it is at and how bad it is there. A tornado is a rapidly spinning tube of air that touches both the ground and cloud above.
Not all tornadoes are visible but their high wind speeds and rapid rotation often form a visible funnel of condensed water. Damage paths of tornadoes can be more than of one-mile-wide ad 50 miles long.
How to survive one is to stay inside, get away from windows and doors and evacuate the area as soon as possible. On the other hand, Hurricanes are an intense tropical storm with powerful winds and heavy rain. They travel up to 74 miles per hour.
Hurricanes usually form in tropical areas of the world. What causes a hurricane is warm ocean water and warm air, the cycle starts forming huge clouds and starts a hurricane. What makes these two alike is that they both contain strong rotating wind that can cause damage.
They each have heavy rain, they also have thunder and lighting. People are most likely alerted when a hurricane or tornado watch is coming. Everyone under a tornado or hurricane watch is protected and far away from the area. How these two are different are that hurricanes form over tropical oceans and tornadoes form over land.
Hurricanes take several days and tornadoes take up only to 15-30 minutes. Hurricanes last up to three weeks and tornadoes last no more than an hour. Tornadoes are way smaller than hurricanes. They are most likely to hurt you less when a hurricane is coming. Now that you know how to survive when a natural disaster is coming you should follow these rules and make sure you are safe when attempting to evacuate the area. Go to a safe area where the natural disaster is not going to be hitting there much. Keep in mind that they can form any time of the year anyplace and anytime. Make sure to stay as safe as you can.
