
As you can see, the hurricane
started to form around Florida,
or the southeast part of
America, and it made it’s way
up towards us.
The Jarrell
Tornado
F5 Tornado
 The Jarrell Tornado was an F5
tornado. It hit the town of Jarrell,
TX 1997.
 They are formed by two air
masses “chasing around each
other”, which creates a funnel.
How tsunamis are
formed.
Tsunamis are formed by
earthquakes under the sand of
the sea.
Earthquakes make the ground
rumble, right? Well if it’s a
severe earthquake it can make
the sea floor rumble so hard, it
makes a huge wave which is
called a tsunami.
There are lots of tsunamis where
there are islands. Like Indonesia
for instance. They get hit buy
tsunamis all the time!

Blizzards
Blizzards is not just snow falling
from the sky causing snow days for
kids. Blizzards can last up to 2
days! Maybe even more. Blizzards
also don’t just happen at one state.
They happen at multiple states at the
same time! We get blizzards because
the temperature is probably lower
than 32 degrees Fahrenheit
[freezing point on the Fahrenheit
scale]. It also happens because the air
pressure is low too.
Thunder storms A.K.A
electrical storms…
Thunder storms is a form of
severe weather, characterized
by the presence of lightning
and its acoustic effect on
Earth’s atmosphere known
as thunder.
Did you know lightning is
electricity? Well it is just in
the sky!

TORNADO!
Hurricanes are most likely to happen
down near Florida. Where it is nice
and tropical and of course, near a
body of water. Hurricanes form over
water. That’s why the middle states,
where there is no water near, get
tornadoes instead of hurricanes.
