  • Tornadoes form from thunderstorms where warm moist air and cool dry air masses meet to create an instability in the atmosphere
  • High pressure air and low pressure air combine and that new air becomes warm and moist and rises the surrounding air starts to swirl around it
  • Once formed, hurricanes take energy from the warm ocean water to become stronger. A storm will strengthen if there is a supply of warm, moist air to feed it. Warm, moist air is found above warm, tropical ocean waters.
  • Hurricane
  • Hurricanes form over warm water while tornadoes form over land within storms
  • vs
  • Hurricanes wind speeds are usually less than 180 mph while a tornadoes wind speed can be up to 300 mph
  • The Tornado Alley starts from central Texas, goes north through Oklahoma, central Kansas and Nebraska, and eastern South Dakota.
  • Hurricanes cause erosion, buildings getting destroyed, heavy flooding, loss of power and contaminated water supply.
  • Hazardous or toxic material could be carried and transported along down streams. Tornadoes also could transport organisms across the land while destroying top soil and crops.
  • Tropical Storms are an upgrade into a tropical storm occurs when cyclonic circulation becomes more organized and maximum sustained winds gust consistently
  • Tropical Depression is when a low pressure area is accompanied by thunderstorms that produce a circular wind flow with maximum sustained winds 
  • A hurricane is when  A tropical storm is upgraded into Category 1 hurricane status as maximum sustained winds
