Weather disasters The weather is always changing. Nobody really know exactly what it will be like and where it will happen. Some weather phenomena appear to be a feast of eyes, such as rainbow or snow. However we have to pay attention to some other phenomena which can result in terrible destruction. Such as typhoons, tornadoes, lighting storms, etc. Here I ’ d like to introduce something about tornadoes.


Tornadoes Tornadoes are also called twisters in America. Tornadoes are one of the most beautiful, mystical natural weather phenomena. It can ’ t be predicted correctly as we predict hurricanes. Where there is a thunderstorm, there may appear tornadoes. The color of them range from white to black, those appear in water are usually white and those in land are gray or black, sometimes they are not visible. A tornado is extremely dangerous, it can destroy nearly everything it touches in its path. Tornadoes come in different shapes, but the most common shape is a funnel and the narrow end can touch the surface of the earth.
