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.
The southern part of the USA is where a lot of tornadoes occur , to be precise more that 1,200 tornadoes and most of these are in the southern parts which mainly experience many of either F4 or F5 tornadoes annually . Tornadoes are a weather phenomenon that occur regularly throughout the US. They are caused by very low pressure systems that form during storm events. Signs of Tornadoes include unusual amounts of heavy rain and hail , A large, dark, low-lying cloud (particularly if rotating) and Dark, often greenish sky. These indicate the awareness of shelter and too be ready to take cover if needed.
Hurricane Rick was the second-most intense Pacific hurricane on record and the strongest to ever form during October. Developing south of Mexico on October 15, Rick traversed an area favoring rapid intensification, allowing it to become a hurricane within 24 hours of being declared a tropical depression. An eye began to form during the afternoon of October 16; once fully formed, the storm underwent another period of rapid strengthening. During the afternoon of October 17, the storm attained Category 5 status on the Saffir–Simpson Hurricane Scale. Several hours later, Rick attained its peak intensity as the second-strongest Pacific hurricane on record with winds of 180 mph (285 km/h) and the barometric pressure bottomed out at 906 mbar (hPa;
Lightning sets about 10,000 forest fires every year in the United States. 17. In one day a hurricane can release enough energy to supply all of the nation’s electrical needs for about six months. 18. The highest temperature ever recorded in the United States was 134 degrees F at Greenland Ranch in Death Valley, California.
The hurricane continued to strengthen, and Carol reached an initial peak intensity of 105 mph (170 km/h) late on August 27. By that time, it was a small hurricane, and the radius of maximum winds was smaller than normal for its latitude and central pressure. After maintaining peak intensity for 30 hours and moving a distance of about 75 miles (120 km), Carol weakened slightly off the coast of
Two quotes from “A Sound of Thunder” that represent this theme are “Embedded in the mud, glistening green and gold and black, was a butterfly very beautiful and dead” (pg. 299) and “It fell to the floor, an exquisite thin, a small thing that could upset balances and knock down a line of small dominoes and then big dominoes and then gigantic dominoes, all down the years across time.”(pg. 299), these quotes represent the theme because they show that one little thing changed the future entirely. This theme represents science fiction because if time travel were real, scientific date can prove that things could be changed very
Billy Bales Mr. Ward English III CP 13 December 2011 Symbolism of the Meteor in The Scarlet Letter The Scarlet Letter has so many parts that are symbolic like the Letter, Pearl, and the Meteor. " The appearance of the meteor at that particular moment in the book contributes to the plot in many ways" (Roberts). The meteor flying across the sky is a big part of how the book ends up. The meteor also changes characters, and their interactions in particular relationships. When the meteor is spotted there are many different interpretations.
Gore also asserts that global warming is caused by over population. Toxins and chemicals in the atmosphere impact each individual in the world. Because of the effects of global warming, the strength of hurricanes can change easily and cause an enormous amount of
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.
