Lightning is a bright flash of light in the sky. Be careful be. A: A tornado is a rotating column of air that reaches from a thunderstorm cloud to the ground.

If it doesn't reach the ground, it's called a funnel cloud because it's shaped like a funnel. The color is dark because of dust and dirt pulled up into it from the ground.

A deadly tornado struck Nuevo Leon, Mexico, on Friday evening, causing injuries and major damage to an industrial park in Apodaca. At a Glance The storms spawned at least two tornadoes. According to the National Severe Storms Laboratory, thunderstorms can cause damage due to high winds, flash flooding from rain and from lightning strikes.

Strong thunderstorms can also spawn tornadoes, which can cause massive destruction to personal and business property. Severe or non-severe.

Severe storms have one or more of the following conditions: Winds of 58+ miles per hour - Hail of one inch or greater in diameter - Tornadoes. The Enhanced Fujita Scale (EF scale) rates tornado strength based on the damage that has occurred.

The scale ranges from EF 0 to EF : Tiffany Means. The storm first rolled in during the morning and took out the roofs of buildings, toppled trees, and caused a series of severe thunderstorm and tornado watches.

A PREPAREDNESS GUIDE Including Tornado Safety Information for Schools. Thunderstorms. A thunderstorm affects a relatively small area when compared to a hurricane or a winter storm. The typical thunderstorm is 15 miles in diameter and lasts an average of 30 Size: 1MB.

Thunderstorms, Lightning & Tornadoes page 3 Tornado A tornado is a narrow, violently rotating column of air that extends from the base of a thunder-storm to the ground.

Because wind is invisible, you can’t always see a tornado. A visible sign of the tornado, a condensation funnel made up of water droplets, sometimes forms and may or may. Tornadoes can last from several seconds to more than an hour but most last less than 10 minutes.

The size and/or shape of a tornado is no measure of its strength. Occasionally, small tornadoes do major damage and some very large tornadoes, over a quarter-mile wide, have produced only light damage.

The tornado will gradually lose intensity. Scientists analyze the damage caused by tornadoes to assess the strength of a tornado and estimate its wind speeds. These observations form the basis of Enhanced Fujita Scale, a tool that categorizes tornadoes on a scale from mildest, F0, to most violent, F5.

Tornadoes were spotted in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin as thunderstorms swept through the area Saturday. High winds and a possible tornado were also reported in Indiana. The National Weather Service said an EF3 tornado with winds of up to mph ( kph) struck Jonesboro, Ark., and an EF1 struck neighboring Greene County.
