What is a tornado?

A tornado is a violent rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. Most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with, wind speeds of up to 300mph. Tornadoes destroy buildings, uproot trees, hurl vehicles hundreds of yards,and also drive straw into trees. Tornadoes can damage paths in excess of 1 mile wide to 50 miles wide.In an average year, 1000 tornadoes are reported. They appear as a traditional funnel shape or in a slender rope-like form. Some have a churning smokey look while others contain “multiple vortices”,small individual rotating around a common center. Some are nearly invisible, you can only see swirling dust or debris at ground levels. Funnel clouds start rotating cone-shape Lou new of air extending downward from the bas of thunderstorms. They usually don’t touch the ground. When it reaches the ground then it is called a tornado. Tornado researchers still do not fully understand how tornadoes die,form,and also grow. They are still trying to solve the tornado puzzle. Every piece that seem to fit uncovers new pieces that need to be studied.

Waterspouts are weak tornadoes which form over water, most common along the GulfCoast. Waterspouts sometimes move inland,becoming tornadoes cause damage and injuries. 

Real life tornado incidents:

Yesterday in my neighbor hood at 2:35 a.m., we got a tornado warning. There was a tornado siren right next to us so that, we could be warned. Eventually there was no tornado. I was really glad when I found out. Instead there was a REALLY big storm throughout the night. No one was hurt or injured for the rest of the night.

Safety Tips: 

  • Tornadoes occur at any time
  • No terrain is safe from a tornado
  • Never open windows in weather situations
  • Have a disaster plan
  • Make sure everyone knows where to go in case of a tornado 



Fashion magazines are magazines that involve fashion,beauty, and clothing. I think that fashion magazines have a few problems. 1 They give their models terrible looks, 2 the clothes look terrible no matter how beautiful  they try to make it, and finally 3, the posing from their models look terrible!  Though they have terrible things in their magazines/ the models,  thy have excellent beauty products. They mix beauty products together to make 1 big thing! Their newest feature is something you can use to beautify your eyebrows that is double ended. They have a lash on 1 end and a brush on the other. My opinion on fashion magazines is if I like them or not. I hate fashion magazines! I see fashion magazines as little hypnotizing glamour books which try to, hypnotize you to buy things from that company. This is my opinion only.  I like the ideas that they have but I think they make too much makeup in the world. They should try to make more things for kids. For example let’s take clothing. If you have ever been to JcPenny you can see that there are wonderful types of clothing for kids there. But they don’t advertise that, they advertise the women’s stuff. They have amazing clothing for kids when they don’t advertise it! I never saw how much I liked the JcPenny clothes for kids until,I went there. I never knew that there was great clothing there until I went there. Women always know what they want at fashion stores but, kids don’t. They should make a fashion magazine for kids if they have clothing for kids. Even if they don’t have much they should just do it! They might get lots of customers asking for kids clothing. Well that is just my opinion about fashion magazines. Others may like it or may not.
