Wisconsin Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness week is the week of April 8th through the 12th.
Tornadoes are relatively short-lived localized storms. They are composed of violently rotating columns of air that descend in the familiar funnel shape from thunderstorm clouds.
The weather conditions that tend to generate tornadoes are unseasonably warm and humid earth surface air, cold air at middle atmospheric levels, and strong upper-level jet stream winds.
The destructive path of a tornado averages about 250 yards in width and 15 miles in length. In extreme
conditions, a tornado may travel more than 300 miles and leave a path of total destruction more than a mile wide. Tornadoes will travel up to 60 mph, with wind speeds approaching 400 mph within the tornado’s center.
Signs and Warnings
Tornadoes develop during severe thunderstorms, and while not all thunderstorms create tornadoes, the potential is there. During violent weather, keep tuned to local television or radio station for tornado reports.
If you are outside and see a funnel-shaped cloud with obvious rotating motion, it may be a tornado. As a
tornado develops, it will produce a loud roar that grows louder as the funnel cloud touches the ground. When close by, a tornado has a loud sound comparable to the combined roars of several jet engines.
The National Severe Storms Forecast Center in Kansas City, Missouri issues tornado watches. Local National Weather Service offices issue tornado warnings. Local officials may sound sirens in a tornado warning.
A tornado watch indicates that conditions are right for a tornado to develop and the sky should be watched.
A tornado warning indicates a tornado has been sighted or is spotted on radar. Warnings will give the location of the tornado and the area immediately affected by the warning.
Immediate and Long Term Dangers
The immediate threat from tornadoes is danger to life and damage to property from violently whirling winds and debris hurled through the air by winds.
Long-term risks include the possibility of building collapse, fallen trees and power lines, broken gas lines, broken sewer and water mains, and the outbreak of fires. Agricultural crops and industries may be damaged or destroyed.
The best preparation for a tornado is to designate a safe place in or around your home as a tornado
shelter. Tornado shelters are safest if they are under ground. A storm cellar or basement away from windows offers the best protection.
Other ways you can prepare prior to the storm season is to review your home, farm or renters policy and make sure you are insured on a replacement cost basis.
If you are a crop farmer, purchase your crop hail insurance prior to the cutoff dates in the spring and in the fall. If you are a dairy farmer, make sure your cattle are insured.
For the worst case scenario, it is a good time to pull out your life insurance policy and see if it is up to date with the face value amount. Do you need to add any riders for your children or insure them on their own policy(s)? Are your beneficiary designations up to date?
