When I first saw the movie ‘’Twister’’, it showed me how much destruction a tornado can cause.  Ever since I saw it I knew I would never want me or my family to be in one.  Honestly what kind of natural disaster can pick up a cow.  The tornado causes so much death and destruction.  After this essay I hope you will feel the same.

Tornadoes are caused by the cold and hot air in the atmosphere that mixes together to create a vortex.  Scientists say it is similar to a whirlpool  in the bath tub.  For instance the author states that, ‘’The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of 250 mph’’.  The tornadoes usually form in certain areas.  These areas scientist study and try to find tornadoes.  This place is called tornado alley.  Tornado alley is a place in the United States that are usually in concentrated in the middle of the country.  There are about one thousand recorded every year.

Tornadoes are known for having one of the most natural disaster destruction.  Tornadoes kill a lot of people and destroy lots of land.  People end up without houses and places to live.  If you are a farmer it can ruin your whole field and will have a big impact on you and your family.  They are very strong and have a very little chance of surviving.  It can be up to one to two miles
wide that is a large span.  The deadliest tornado ever was in Bangladesh killing thirteen hundred people.

Lastly the people that study and warn us about the tornadoes are called storm chasers.  The storm chasers literally hunt the tornadoes down and figure out where they are going to be.  They run straight up to the tornadoes and risk their lives to warn and protect the people that live there.  Without these warning people will lose the things that they love and more people will die.

Ultimately, the tornado is the most destructive natural disaster ever created.  It is the most destructive because it ruins everything in a big span and kills anything in it.  And also it causes lots of deaths and people to lose everything.  Therefore the tornado is the most destructive natural disaster.
