Tips about Tornadoes-How to spot one early
“Twister Tech: 5 Ways to Spot Tornadoes Early” comes from Popular Mechanics. It offers five ways to spot a tornado on its way. They include:
- A more targeted warning system that alerts smaller geographic areas to the possible presence of a tornado so that those getting the warning take it seriously.
- A new Doppler that can determine the size and shape of exactly what is in the air — either rain, snow or hail.
- The power of sound, including infrasonic arrays that measure super-low-frequency sounds that allow severe storm activity to be observed from more than 600 miles away.
- The power of lightning by using networks of electrical sensors called Lightning Mapping Arrays to pinpoint lightning’s location more quickly.
- A 3D tornado simulator for study of the storm in great detail.
