  • Technically, Morino was just a violent rotating column of air coming out of the bottom of a thunderstorm.

  • But it takes a lot to get that violently rotating column to come out.

  • All you need for a tornado really deformed, though, are thunderstorms and a jet stream that jet streams aloft.

  • It makes the energy.

  • If you have moisture at the surface dry air, cold air pushing that moisture up, you can get a 20 don't form In any state those days were all the ingredients combined.

  • You get the humidity, get the dry air, you get the jetstream, you get upper energy in the jet stream, you get winds turning as you go aloft.

  • The higher you go, the winds actually changed direction that can cause storms.

  • Those things all cost warms to exist and get big.

  • Those are the ingredients that cause a big tornado date.

  • So now the E F scale enhanced Fujita scale starts at zero, goes only to five.

  • Anything above 200 MPH is considered an e f five tornado.

  • If you have zero, you're gonna lose shingles a one.

  • You may lose a couple of boards on the roof to you lose all the windows and maybe even a wall.

  • Ah, three e f.

  • Three.

  • You will lose a couple of walls on the outside, but there will still be a part of the home standing on F four.

  • Most of the home is gone, but you'll still see the refrigerator.

  • You'll still see a closet, and you'll still see the bathroom.

  • E F.

  • Five.

  • You cannot find the house.

  • It's completely, but we don't know how big that Fujita scale will be.

  • How big that tornado will be literally until after we look at the damage way have this almost his triangulation that no other country in the world over region in the world has.

  • We have the Rocky Mountains to our west.

  • We have the Gulf of Mexico in our south.

  • We have Canada and very cold air masses coming down from the north.

  • All of those things combined make tornado out.

  • Typically, the planes Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska all the way to Chicago, as far south as the Southeast, including Georgia and Alabama.

  • That's basically the new or the bigger tornado alley.

  • The greatest threat of a tornado is being hit by something that the tornado is moving if you're outside or for not protected inside.

  • If you'd hit by 140 mile per hour two by four, you're going to be killed.

  • So you need to be inside on the lowest level somewhere in the middle of the home, away from windows.

  • When you hear the word warning and you hear your county, that's when you need to take cover.

  • When you hear the word watch, that means something might happen today.

  • Let's have a plan.

  • When you hear the word warning, it's too late to make a plan.

  • You need to already have a plan.

  • Warnings.

  • Long word.

  • It's the bed.
