Joplin Tornado Turned The Whole Large Hospital 5 Inches. Even Cardboard Became a Lethal Weapon

National Weather Service Springfield, MO – Event Review – May 22

May 22, 2011 – The forward speed of the tornado through most of Joplin was about 20 to 25 Concrete constructed walls were toppled and moved several feet or In some cases, even cardboard was embedded sideways into stucco walls.

It is so unbelievable people are in a trance or have to go out to see it for themselves! Joplin had, had some 100 degree weather before the tornado hit, so the ground was so hot it created a wind of its own! Besides becoming a super cell with the two meeting and going upward.

What is a supercell thunderstorm?
A supercell thunderstorm is a long-lived thunderstorm whose updrafts and downdrafts are in near balance. These storms have the greatest tendency to produce tornadoes that stay on the ground for long periods of time. Supercell thunderstorms can produce violent tornadoes with winds exceeding 200 mph.

What is a mesocyclone?
A mesocyclone is a rotating vortex of air within a supercell thunderstorm. Mesocyclones do not always produce tornadoes.

When these two air masses meet, they create instability in the atmosphere. A supercell thunderstorm is a long-lived thunderstorm whose updrafts and A gustnado is a short-lived, relatively weak whirlwind that forms along a gust front. North Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana all make up Tornado Alley.

A supercell can last longer than a regular thunderstorm. The same property that keeps the storm going also produces most tornadoes. The wind coming into the

A person only has seconds to react to a warning.

At the one Joplin School it was the window glass that shredded the whole building! No children were in it!!

At the Hospital that was turned, the window glass was stabbing the patients! Now in their New hospital just built or being built the glass can with stand 200 miles per hour winds.

Put on your shoes! Use interior rooms and hallways on the lowest floor away from windows. an interior room without windows on the lowest floor such as a bathroom or closet.

Crouch Down

If you live in a mobile home get out. They offer little protection against tornadoes. Get out of automobiles. Do not try to outrun a tornado in your car, leave it immediately. If you’re outside, go to a ditch or low lying area and lie flat in it.

    Earthquake Safety Tips

    It appears to be sound advice. Please take heed.

    1) Almost everyone who simply “Ducks and Covers” when buildings collapse ARE CRUSHED TO DEATH. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

    2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too, in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. That position helps you survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to the sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

    3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs. Concrete slab buildings are the most dangerous during an earthquake.

    4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

    5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

    6) Almost everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse, is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed.

    7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different moment of frequency (they swing separately from the main part of the building) The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fall are chopped up by the stair treads, horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn’t collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.

    8. Get near the outer walls of buildings or outside of them if possible, it is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.

    9) People that get inside their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicle, which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake, all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and lying in the fetal position next to their vehicle. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

    10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

    Please SPREAD THE WORD about the “triangle of life” to friends and families, it could save someone’s life. With all the natural disasters going on in the world, every little bit can only help.
