Artist Sam L. Rolls made this brilliant homage to both the Royal Air Force and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The rendering depicts Royal Air Force Chinook, Tornado, Spitfire, and Typhoon combat aircraft charging across the water as if they were X-Wings from The Force Awakens.
Aunque suene raro, los tornados de fuego son un fenómeno natural que se produce cuando un remolino de viento interactúa con las turbulencias de aire creadas por un incendio. En The Slow Mo Guys han recreado uno de estos remolinos con espectaculares resultados.
Today is the two-year anniversary of the largest tornado ever recorded. The tornado, a multiple-vortex EF-3 (by damage, EF-5 by radar measurements) grew to an astonishing width of 2.6 miles at its widest. The storm killed eight people, including three highly experienced storm chasers caught by the tornado’s explosive…
The WindEEE Research Institute, in Ontario, Canada, has this amazing wind chamber capable of creating a tornado vortex at the touch of a button. The tornado can go up to 16 feet wide (5 meters) and move at six feet (2 meters) per second.
Tornadoes terrify me. Being sucked into the sky never to return again was a recurring childhood nightmare of mine, one that felt extremely realistic. Which is why I shiver at the sight of these massive waterspouts. I imagine myself on a boat, being lifted up by some massive force, surrounded by sharks trying to bite…
According to the Youtube description, this video—published yesterday in Reddit but shot last year—captures the moment when a tornado violently hits a village in Bashkiria, Russia. The hair-raising footage was taken from a car's dash cam that stayed on even when the tornado was passing right over it.
A pair of tornadoes touched down within a mile of each other in northeast Nebraska today. While multiple tornadoes spawning from a single storm are common, having an independent pair of strong twisters touch down this close together is rare and downright devastating.
I can't understand why Dan Yorgason kept recording an incoming tornado instead of getting the hell out of there as fast as possible. He just gets into a truck with a friend and waits to get taken away like Dorothy, all the while laughing and swearing.
This is sad. Security camera footage shows a children's playground in Tupelo, Mississippi being destroyed by a tornado. It's not like the playground is some sort of impenetrable fortress but the winds of the twister monster pretty much levels it in minutes.
On April 27th, a tornado cut through Mayflower and Vilonia, Arkansas. The EF4 storm had winds raging at between 267 and 322 kilometers per hour, wrecking devastation. A new satellite image reveals the 66 kilometer path of destruction.
In this week's landscape reads, we get to see just how screwed we are in the drought, visit a 2 billion-year-old nuclear reactor (all natural!), investigate mysterious fires in North Korea, and tour tornado shelters that look like real-life hobbit holes.
Everywhere has disasters. In the United States, this ranges from earthquakes on the west coast, hurricanes on the east coast, and tornadoes in-between. The only question is which ones you can tolerate, and how you prepare for them.
The main attraction in Kansas's Crisis City, a disaster simulation zone, is a giant pile of rubble. It isn't easy, you know, to make rubble that is 1) structurally sound enough for trainees to crawl over safely and 2) structurally unsound enough to simulate a real disaster.
Here is your new storm-chasing weather-destructo-porn fetish movie. It's called Into The Storm, and it stars Lori from The Walking Dead, Thorin Oakenshield, and just a pantsload of totally insane tornadoes attacking one town over and over and over.
BAE Systems, which helps the UK's RAF put together its aircraft, has revealed that some Tornado fighter jets have been flying with spare parts built using a 3D printer.
This short video is absolutely terrifying and heartbreaking. In just 30 seconds, the home and life of this Washington, Illinois, couple was utterly destroyed at the hands of a monster tornado. The footage is a gut-wrenching look at how quickly a natural disaster can wreck everything.
Tornadoes ripped through the Midwest of the United States earlier today and the damage it left behind is absolutely tragic. These pictures of Washington, Illinois, the worst area affected, show how a community gets shredded by natural disaster. The path is violent, the ground is scarred and the homes are just gone.
No no but really. Guys. YOU GUYS.
