Transcript of School Tornado Drills

kids need to be prepared for their safety, everyone is ready. Having school tornado drills is very
important for the safety of it's students Even though, it may not seem important

is a tornado, and your school has a plan

Tornadoes come in many shapes and sizes, but are typically in the form of a visible condensation funnel, whose narrow end touches the earth and is often encircled by a cloud of debris and dust.
Tornadoes can damage an area one mile wide and 50 miles long You should understand the difference in the following terms to accurately prepare yourself for a tornado, whether your at school or at home.

Tornado Watch -- Tornadoes are possible. Stay tuned to the radio or television news.

Thunderstorms develop in warm, moist air in advance of eastward-moving cold fronts. These thunderstorms often produce large hail, strong winds, and tornadoes.

Occasionally, large outbreaks of tornadoes occur with this type of weather pattern. Several states may be affected by numerous severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.
