To measure the intensity of hurricanes, the Fujita Scale is used which varies from grade 0 (weak) to grade 5 (catastrophic).
How are air horns (or tornadoes) born? – The process of forming a tornado is linked to certain weather characteristics. favorable conditions for aggregate formation They are found in very unstable environments, characterized by variable winds (Windshear) depending on altitude and the presence of a mass of hot and humid air, dominated by cold and dry air, which leads to rising and intensifying winds into powerful storms.
