The extremely high winds pick up debris, causing seemingly harmless things such as small pieces of Styrofoam or wood to become lethal projectiles. The winds can also cause extensive structural damage. The storms associated with tornadoes also bring hazards such as baseball-sized hail and intense rain around the vicinity of the tornado. To keep safe follow the instructions I mentioned before but the most important get to a low area and grab hold of something very strong or under a table . From the inferences I have made , we can deduct that tornadoes are hazardous to the Southern Parts of the
The associated air masses of storms within the British Isles are Polar maritime and Tropical maritime. As these two bodies of air move towards each other the warmer, less dense air from the south rises above the colder, dense air from the north. Circulations of low pressure then develop at points where the air is rising vigorously, this then coincides with waves in the polar front and jet stream. As a consequence there is much unsettled weather including heavy rain, strong winds and a variety of stormy cumulus clouds form; all of which can have devastating impacts socio-economically for an area as well as on the environment. The storm of 1987 occurred on the 15th and 16th of October due to a depression forming within the Bay of Biscay and had disastrous effects on the south and south-east of the UK.
Potential for emergency exist which may result in loss of power and the high winds associated with this disaster. FLOODS: Floods are the most probable natural cause of emergencies or disasters at Ashford University. Spring thaws and ice breakups may cause some lowland flooding. Summer or fall storms are more likely to be responsible for major flooding. STRONG STORMS: Winter storms with snow, ice and freezing temperatures in various combinations, are fairly commonplace at Ashford University.
They require sea-surface temperatures of at least 26°C and the influence of the earth’s rotation to initiate a spinning circulation (Coriolis effect). Hurricanes are generally known by three different names. Hurricanes are categorised on a scale from 1-5, 1 being the weakest and 5 being the strongest. This categorisation is bad upon the wind speed of the hurricane. The environmental effects that a hurricane can have on an area can be catastrophic.
Even though Hurricane Hazel had devastating winds, it was not known for that, it was known for its speed. Hurricane Hazel’s speed allowed it to do damage to seven states and parts of Canada. “Hurricane hunter planes found Hazel’s winds to have accelerated to 150 mph, and the storm was moving at an incredible forward speed 30 mph (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Hazel)”. Those speeds are very fast moving for hurricanes, especially ones of this size. This shows that this hurricane was much more different and deadly from most hurricanes.
Hurricanes Hurricanes, also known as tropical cyclones, are low pressure storm systems that form on open water and feed on heat released when moist air rises. Hurricanes are recognized on radar by their distinct pin wheel shape. When hurricanes begin to take shape they are called a tropical storm. The word “tropical” is used because most of these storms are formed by the very warm water of the tropics. Hurricanes need the ocean’s water temperature to be about 80 degrees to a depth of about 150 feet.
It seems as if when the apocalypse happens, the epicenter will be in Haiti. The location and weather patterns of the island have plagued the island with natural disasters. Haiti has had many recorded hurricanes, earthquakes, and storms. The country has a disproportionately large coastline which makes it very susceptible to hurricanes. Haiti also has large rivers that overflow in the rainy seasons and dry up during the dry season.
Acid Rain in North America is a very serious issue which needs to be addressed. It affects the environment in many different ways affecting, lakes, trees, animal, and other living things. If people are willing to help, the chances of disaster will be decrease, but if actions do not take place, then the acid rain will cause a lot of damages to the environment. Wet deposition is a form of acid deposition which includes fog or snow. In this process acidic water flows over and through the ground and affects varieties of plants and animals.
