For the
PICS At LEAST, 100,000 T-storms come
(annually) An average year, lightning kills
200-300 people Remain alert and take action to protect yourself and family during T-storm watch/warning Floods, Fires, Blackouts are all causes from Thunderstorms http://www.mentalfloss.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/lightning.jpg http://www.mentalfloss.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/lightning.jpg http://www.mnn.com/sites/default/files/user-71/WE_MissouriLightning_Brandt_082008.jpg VIDEOS We couldnt decide what video so we chose both!:) Thunderstorm-a small storm often accompanied by heavy rain and hail(ouch) Cumulonimbus- a type of cloud that has thunderstorms, also called a thunder head:a Latin word which translates to ‘rain heaps’ When lightning hits the ground it tends to strike icolated, pointed objects (trees, tall buildings, ect.) one of the most dangerous elements of weather It can instantly kill you at once! Thunder and lightning happen at the same time but sound is SLOW... 40,000 T-storms throughout the worls EVERY DAY!! They usually form late afternoon or early evening on hot summer days! Lightning travels at 300,000 m/s
Thunder travels at 343 m/s 80% of lightning occours within a single cloud
20% is cloud to ground Lightning bolts heat the air to 54,000`F That's FIVE TIMES hotter then the suns SURFACE!!! By: MEGAN D.

HAHA, Just makin' sure you were listening!!
You passed!! Slow Motion Warm moist air creates a high enough velocity to create a thunderstom:) http://www.buzzle.com/articles/thunderstorm-facts.html 16 million thunderstorms annually all over the globe There are about 1800 thunderstorms occurring at any moment across the world Lightning will usually goes OUTSIDE of where it rains! Wow To find out the distance that you are away from the thunder, count the seconds that have passed between lightening and the next sound of thunder and divide the that by five! its fun:) Thunderstorms start to dissipate after about 30 minutes:) There are 3 different stages: The Cumulus Stage, The Mature Stage, and The Dissipating Stage Cumulus stage: heat rises Mature stage: Rain starts to form along with thunder and lightening Dissipating stage: This is where the storm starts to die out Single cell Thunderstorm: A rare thunderstorm that only last a short time(30 minutes) and is very difficult to forcast Warm moist air creates a high enough velocity to create a thunderstorm Multi-cell Cluster Storm: Very common, happen in groups, a few hours long, it has medium sized hail, and weak tornadoes Warm moist air is fuel for the storm Multi-cell Line Storm: a long line of thunderstorms, create hail the size of golf balls, weak tornados, and easily predicted with radars almost all thunderstorms grow to hights above 20,000ft. •Super-cell Storms: rare, very organized, high threat to life and property, and strong to violent tornadoes Cumulonimbus clouds can be more then 12 miles high!! (thats the WHOLE troposhere!!) Do Not try to shelter yourself under a tree! The tree can be uprooted by the wind and they may fall on you... then youd be dead:) poor dead person A sturdy building is the best place to be in a thunderstorm
If you're in a car when the thunder storm hits, Stay there. It's safer in your car than outside Cold air sinks as warm air rises that develops a thunderstorm! Mid-Level: More organized than a low-level thunderstorm and slightly more dangerous Upper-level: Thunderstorms that are strong or severe will have an anvil shaped cloud with sharp and well-defined edges. The least time it will last is 10 minutes. Low-Level: Not a very severe storm frequently form within areas located at mid-latitude where warm moist air front collides and border cool air fronts. rare in Alaska, New England, North Dakota, Montana, and other northern states where the air is usually cold. Florida's Gulf Coast experiences the greatest number of thunderstorms most likely to occur in the spring and summer months during after noon and evening hours 1800 thunderstorms are occurring at any moment across the world They can occur all over the world but along the golf coast and across he south eastern and western united states they are most likely to occur all year round and in the plain states they often occur in early evening how long does a storm usually last? What % of lighning occers within a single cloud? Where should you go during a storm? go to the show it goes back andforth How hot does the air heat up to? http://www.ehow.com/how_8401781_make-pie-pan-pencil-alumiplate.html 80% 54,000`F Inside, away from windows By: Sam Fabisch (:
