hurricanes



Hurricanes

Hurricanes are tropical cyclones that represent rapidly rotating storm systems. These massive storm systems feature low-pressure centers, high winds, and a spiraling collection of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Hurricanes can be referred to as typhoons, tropical storms, cyclonic storms, tropical depressions or cyclone.


tornadoes


Tornadoes

A tornado is a rapidly rotating column of air that involves a connection with the ground and the clouds above. It usually involves the cumulonimbus clouds but occasionally a tornado may come from a cumulus cloud. Tornadoes are often called twisters or cyclones.


earthquakes


Earthquakes

Earthquakes are created from the sudden release of energy in the earth’s crust. This energy occurs as the plates shift against one another along fault lines. Earthquakes are also referred to as quakes or tremors.


tsunamis

The Nile River is the longest river in the world. The river extends 4,132 miles (6,650 km) crossing through 10 different countries. There are two sources, the Blue Nile and White Nile, of the river that originate in Uganda and Ethiopia.


volcanoes


Volcanoes

A volcano involves a rupture or explosion in the earth’s crust, which result in hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape into the air and across the earth’s surface. This happens because the earth’s crust features 17 tectonic plates that float on a surface that is hotter and softer.


sandstorms

lightning


Lightning

Lightning involves a large electrostatic discharge between the electrically charged areas of clouds. These charged regions will momentarily equalize and in doing so create the lightning flash. There are three types of lightning including intra-cloud (IC), cloud to cloud (CC), and cloud to ground (CG). Although it can be too far away to hear, thunder always follows lightning.
