Tornadoes can be devastating. High winds spin in a cyclonic vortex what tears roofs apart. It can be a roofers worst nightmare. Even so, you are lucky if the tornado only takes your roof.
These forces of nature should not be underestimated. In this video, you will learn about a devastating tornado outbreak that occurred recently in Texas and Oklahoma.
On March 21st, more than 20 tornadoes touched down between Texas and Oklahoma. Trucks were flipped, roofs were torn apart, and people were scrambling for cover. In addition to the tornadoes, damaging hail also fell from the skies. Many thousands of people are also without power because of these storms.
In one small town, a tornado touched down for nearly two miles and barreled towards an elementary school. This tornado was classified as an EF3 which has winds between 140-150 miles per hour. The gym roof was ripped apart and collapsed inward. Thankfully, nobody was hurt because all the kids were huddled in a tornado shelter. Being prepared really does make a difference. It is important to never underestimate the power of mother nature.
