    I learnt from the video that tornados are caused by cold and hot winds mixed together.

    I know some other natural disasters: earthquake, flood, tsunami, and landslide.

    The U.K is the most common place in America.

  4. Hello,

    The video of the tornados is breathtaking. The damage they do is horrible.

    What did you learn from the video? – I learnt that there is up to 800 twisters that are caused in the United States (U.S) every year. That is more twisters than any where else in the world!

    Can you think of any Natural Disasters? – Tsaunami, Drought, Earthuake, Flood, Tornado, Typhoon, Bushfire, Hurricane, Monsoon and Landslide.
    If Monsoon is a new word to you it means ‘A large swift of wind that southwest, or the south that brings heavy rainfalls to Southern Asia in the summer.’

    Where is the most common place tornadoes occur? – Near a swamp in Texas, South Dakota.

    Have you experienced any Natural Disasters in your life time?

  16. hello everybody

    1) Tornadoes cause millions of dollars worth of damage to houses and cars each year in the U.S. Tornadoes are caused by warm air from the south colliding with cold air from the north.

    2) The natural disasters I can think of are:
    tsunamis, bush fire, floods, earth quake, volcanoes that is all the natural disasters I know.

    3) The people that chase the tornadoes was the most interesting thing for me.

    My question is :
    Do tornadoes occur anywhere else other than in the U.S?
    Bye for now George see you soon

  17. Hi 45P
    I had trouble loading the page so I was unable to view the video.
    1) I can only comment on my previous knowledge.
    Earthquakes are caused by the tectonic plates moving underground.
    2) Cyclones, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, floods, droughts, bush fires, tornadoes and electrical storms.
    Mostly tornadoes occur in the central US, known as tornado alley. The time they will most likely see tornadoes is Spring.

    What was the most interesting fact you heard in the video?
    From Kaitlyn

  18. Hi 4/5P,

    1) Tornadoes can occur when hot air and cold air mix and around 90 people are killed in the U.S due to tornadoes.

    2) These are the Natural Disasters i know
    Bush fire, Flood,Hurricane, Tornado,Super Volcano,Volcano,Cyclone Flash Flood,Tsunami ,Earthquake,Drought,Avalanche and landslide.

    3)Tornadoes do occur in China and other places but just aren’t as common as in the U.S.

    My Question is how many tornadoes go through the U.S every year.

    Bye 🙂

  20. Hey 4/5P
    It’s Emily
    I learnt that scientists go out and study the tornadoes when a tornado comes and I learnt that nearly 90 people die from tornados each year.
    Other natural disasters are:
    -Earthquake
    -Floods
    -Droughts

    My question is, where shouldn’t you go if there is a tornado coming straight your way?

    🙂 Emily

  21. Hi 4/5P,

    Here are some things that I learnt from the video.

    1. Americans call tornados twisters.
    2. Scientists know how a tornado forms but they don’t know when a tornado is coming.
    3. When people know when a tornado is near they hide in a bathtub or a basement.
    4. When people also know when a tornado is coming they don’t go near a window.
    5. When peoples houses are destroyed by a tornado it takes a long time to build it and it costs lots of money.

    Here are some natural disasters.

    1. Tornados
    2. Bush fires
    3. Flood
    4. Land slide
    5. Avalanche
    6. Cyclone
    7.Eathquake
    8. Tidal wave
    9. Tsunamis
    10. Mud slide

    Bye 🙂
