In many places around the United States, bad weather can disrupt business operations. Whether you’re concerned about hurricanes, tornadoes or blizzards, a comprehensive inclement weather policy can guide operations and keep your employees safe. Show More Summary
Residents of the upper Central Valley were told to seek shelter immediately Tuesday afternoon as a turbulent weather system moved across Northern California and triggered the first tornado warnings of the year for the region, the National Weather Service said. The weather service’s offices in Sacramento...
The event on Tuesday involves a “test tornado warning.”
Whether it’s a winter storm on the East Coast, or tornadoes in middle America, or just some simple rain in California, sometimes your power goes out and takes your internet with you. Any way you look at it, when the internet is down your life is effectively on hold until it’s back up again. Read more...
Years ago, a tornado hit the metro-Atlanta suburb-city where I live. It destroyed a significant number of trees. A local effort emerged to replant the trees by raising money at a festival named Lemonade Days where the community "turned lemons into lemonade." The festival endures years after year.

In may of 2011, a sequence of tornadoes roared across the midwestern United States. The incident became a focal point for scientists eager to learn what it is about supercell storms that allow them to form such devastating tornados.Show More Summary
Have you ever gotten a blaring alert on your phone before severe storms, tornadoes, notices of kidnappings, etc? What you might not realize is that you can actually disable these alerts on iOS and Android devices. Note: These alerts can be extremely useful, especially if you’re unaware of bad weather coming your way. Show More Summary
A vast tornado in Texas and a breaching killer whale in Japan - just some of the entries to have made this year's shortlist at the Sony World Photography Awards.
In the new simulation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, scientists recreated the conditions that gave rise to the catastrophic event using real-world observational data.
An old adage holds that the flap of a butterfly's wing in Brazil can trigger a tornado in Texas weeks later. Though chaos theory says it's basically impossible to compute exactly how that might happen, scientists have made advances in applying math to predict the phenomenon behind it called turbulence.
A tornado can strike any time -- even when your kids aren't with you.
Scientist Leigh Orf and his research team from the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at University of Wisconsin-Madison used a powerful supercomputer to simulate the formation of a powerful supercell that created a series of monstrous tornadoes in 2011 that hit Oklahoma. The team was able to gather valuable data on one particular […]
Scientists are trying to understand patterns in turbulence in order to predict weather disasters like tornadoes, and to answer the question of whether a butterfly’s flapping wings in Brazil can really cause a tornado in Texas.
(Georgia Institute of Technology) Remember the butterfly-triggers-tornado adage? Chaos theory says calculating turbulence to find out if that's true must be impossible. Now, physicists are latching onto turbulent patterns with digital optics and math. Their resulting forecasts jibe with actual turbulent flows.Embeddable video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2hKUhf3bkA
