A tornado is a violent, whirling windstorm that crosses land ina narrow path. It can result from wind shear and updrafts inside athunderstorm. The usual form is a funnel-shaped cloud withdestructive spinning winds, that descends from a cloud to theground over a relatively short period of time. Powe…rful tornadoes create the highest wind speeds on the surface ofthe Earth, which may be in excess of 200 mph (320 kph). The windsand debris will destroy houses and similar structures, and maycause numerous fatalities. Tornadoes are spawned by mesocyclones,and also form as tropical cyclones come ashore. According to the Glossary of Meteorology (AMS 2000), a tornado is"A violently rotating column of air, pendant from a cumuliformcloud or underneath a cumuliform cloud, and often (but not always)visible as a funnel cloud." Literally, in order for a vortex to beclassified as a Tornado, it must be in contact with the ground andthe cloud base. Weather scientists haven't found it so simple inpractice, however, to classify and define Tornadoes. . Tornado is sometimes referred to as "twister". A tornado is arotating column of air in contact with the ground and looks like afunnel cloud. (MORE)
Cyprus is in the Mediterranean Sea. South east of Greece, South of Turkey. Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots live separately after the Turkish invasion in 1974. Turkish Cypriots live in the North while Greek Cypriots live in the South. The Greek Cypriots joined EU as the Republic of Cyprus in 2004…. The North is not recognized as a country by any country besides Turkey. (MORE)
Simply put tornadoes are a means by which storms release energy.These storms in turn have the function of redistributing heat andmoisture on earth. The formation of tornadoes is complicated and not fully understood.This is the best explanation scientists have so far. First, a condition called wind …shear , in which the speed ordirection of the wind changes with altitude. If the shear is strongenough it can essentially tilt a thunderstorm, this separates theupdraft and downdraft of the thunderstorm, preventing them frominterfering with one another. This allows the storm to becomestronger and last longer. Additionally, if the wind shear is strong enough it can start theair rolling in what is called horizontal vorticity . Thishorizontal vorticity can then be turned vertical by athunderstorm's updraft. When this happens, the thunderstorm maystart rotating. The rotation is especially strong in an updraftcalled a mesocyclone . If the storm intensifies rapidlyenough, a relatively warm downdraft called a rear-flankdowndraft or RFD can wrap around the bottom part of themesocyclone. This can then tighten and intensify its rotation andbring it down to the ground to produce a tornado . (MORE)
The earth has tornadoes because if the land is flat and cold and hot weather mixes together in the wind it forms a tornado which gets stronger by the second.
A tornado is a localized and violently destructive windstorm occurring over land characterized by a funnel-shaped cloud extending toward the ground, coming into contact with this can literally tear a building to pieces.
The average temperature for the months of November-March varies between 41 and 59 degrees fahrenheit. The average temperature for the months of June and September is around 98 degrees fahrenheit.
Cyprus is in Europe. Is one of the 27 nations in Europe I think you're getting Europe confused with the EU. The EU is an economic union and has 27 members - Cyprus being on of them. Europe is a continent. Cyprus is a part of Europe. As of the EU....EU means European Union.
Cyprus is famous for its beautiful beaches. why not relax on the beach? there are many historical archaeological sites too. If in the Paphos area, why not to tomb of the kings? A traditional meze is always good too. If in Paphos, head down towards coral bay, a touristy area with shops and restaurant…s, nit far from here is Lara bay. a world renowned site fro turtle nesting. Cyprus has a lot to offer. (MORE)
Tornadoes can destroy homes and neighborhoods. They can also killpeople if people are not in their designated area for protection.Tornado damage can lead to years of cleaning up.
if you are around when a tornado attacks geat under a hevy piece of furnite ei.table and protect your head!!!!!!
You go in the basement and find something storey to hid under. you should not panic and remember all the things you need to do especially find a place where you can be safe ...
A tornado is made up of violently rotating air. It often contains moisture that has condensed as well as dust and sometimes debris that the tornado has picked up.
A tornado can damage or destroy your property. Depending on where you are and how strong the tornado is you may be struck by flying or falling debris, crushed by falling trees and collapsing buildings, or picked up and thrown. All of these can result in injury or death.
First, when you're out of your Hiding Place, search for ANY family member(s), then wait intill Fire-Trucks, Police Cars, etc. arrives, and then ask them to dig ANY family member that is underneth.. There's not much to do after this
You take shelter in a tub or a basement. When you take shelter in a tub, put a mattress over the tub and your body.
Say " YES, I'M ALIVE"! make sure everything is OK if your house didn't get damaged by the tornado stay inside don't touch downed power lines they can shock you leave fluids alone and don't go in a damaged house or building until it is safe hope this helps
You should immediately take cover. If you are driving and you see a tornado, do not try to outrun it. Get out of the car and get into the nearest ditch possible. If there is no ditch, curl up in a ball and cover your head near some shelter. If you are at school, go to the hallway where there are n…o windows and crouch down and cover your head. If you are at home, huddle in the basement or in some small room where there are no windows. (MORE)
Tornadoes damage or destroy buildings and trees that are struck by their powerful winds. People and animals caught in tornadoes can be killed or injured.
An Island republic in the eastern mediterean. Comprsing mostly of Greek-Cypriots. The Southern part is the Republic of Cyprus and is Greek, the Northern part is occupied illegally by Turkish troops. Cyprus was inhabited by Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots, who lived under one Republic. In 1974 th…e Turkish Government invaded Cyprus and took the Northern (fertile) side. After that Turkish-Cypriots had to move to the North and Greek-Cypriots to the South, these Turkish-Cypriots were joined by illegal settlers from Turkey, who were not Cypriot. The island is still split. The Northern side is only recognised by Turkey. The southern side is still a Repubulic, but has strong affilations with the Greek Motherland. Other Groups such as Latins and Maronites also live in the Southern Greek side (also forced from their homes in the Northern side) There is only one island called Cyprus. If you ask about 'a Cyprus' are you asking about the type of evergreen tree, variety Cupressus ? (MORE)
There are various explanations for that, but, the more possible one is that it took the name out of Kuprum, which meant Copper in the ancient era of Cyprus. And as the island was popular for the wealth amounts of Copper (which keeps until today), they used to call it the copper land, otherwise Kupru…m. Through the ages the name had been alternated to several other between which Kubrus, and, ended to Cyprus (in Greek is Kypros). (MORE)
If a tornado is headed your way, the last thing you should do is pack up and try to drive away. Instead, if you have a tornado shelter, gather your family and shut yourselves into it. If you don't, find a small, windowless room (closet, bathroom, etc.) and shut yourselves in there. Take food and wat…er with you as you may be there a while. (MORE)

You can get to Cyprus by flying on the best airlines( Lord Airways) started by Joseph Lord.
There are two major religions in Cyprus; Orthodox Christianity in the south and Islam in the north. Yahweh (or Jehovah) is the Christian god, Allah is the Islamic god - although both religions can trace their roots to Abraham, so it would actually be the same god. In pre-Christian times Aphrodite w…as associated with Cyprus; there is a large rock on the south coast known as Aphrodite's Rock which, it was alleged, was Aphrodite's birthplace. (MORE)
The most popular one is football. The Cypriot league isimproving dramatically through the years, leading two Cypriot teamsto the champions league groups (Anorthosis Famagusta in 2008 andApoel Nicosia in 2009).

Citrus, there are large orchards of orange trees to the west of Limassol at Fasouri which go into the island's Lanitis orange juice. Also almonds, carobs, olives, grapes, figs and I'm sure many other things.
Take cover...and fast. Not sure about your question. Tornadoes will be tornadoes. As I said before take cover. I've always been taught to get into a closet. Or get into a bathtub with a mattress on top of you.
A tornado is a violently rotating column of air extending from thebase of a thunderstorm to the ground, often made visible by acondensation funnel. The powerful winds and flying debris in atornado are capable of cause severe damage to trees and property.Damage can range from broken tree limbs and mi…ssing shingles to thecomplete destruction of entire neighborhoods. The most powerfultornadoes can completel blow away even the sturdiest houses andstrip asphalt from roads. (MORE)
It depends where you're starting from! But as Cyprus is an island, most travellers arrive by air, although there are ferry services to Italy.
No; however there are two military bases (around 2.7% of the island) that are under United Kingdom sovereignty.
Yes, the Republic of Cyprus is led by a president who is both head of state and head of government. This position was formed ever since Cyprus' independence in 1960.
Cyprus uses the Euro with the exception of Northern Cyprus which also uses the Turkish Lira.
Cyprus was never "discovered" by westerners because it waspositioned right in the middle of the Old World and therefore therewas never a time when "westerners" were not aware of its existance.In fact, because of its convenient location, in the ancient timesCyprus used to be an important trading post… for the wholeMediterranean region. Cyprus was first settled by humans in the Paleolithic period (known as the stone age) andcoexisted with various dwarf animal species, such as dwarf elephants ( Elephas cypriotes ) and pygmy hippos ( Hippopotamusminor ) well into the Holocene . Theses ettlers were agriculturalists from theLevant who reached the island by sea. (MORE)
If you mean for safety the best thing to to is go to the basement or underground storm shelter if you have one. If you can't get to underground shelter get to the lowest floor and find a room or closet in the center of the building. A bathroom often provides good shelter. If possible cover yoursel…f with something such as a mattress to shield from debris. Stay away from windows. (MORE)

Cyprus is an island nation, so cannot be reached overland. It is reached by air from a number of locations around the world, or by ferry from the Greek port of Thessaloniki.
to Larnaca - biggest airport in Cyprus (still quite small) recently built - my recommendation to Paphos (small airport and slightly inconvenient) or to the airport in the north, but because there are lots of issues between the north and the south, most everyone flies to the south, unless of c…ourse, you are coming from turkey.

In the event of a tornado the best thing to do is take cover ratherthan try to escape.
No, Cyprus is an island in the mediterranean sea near Egypt. Cyprus is different country. from girl from Cyprus!! ;P
If your in a house, get to a room with no windows(closet,bathroom,etc.). If your outside,get in a ditch(make sure it has no water in it). You can also get in a storm celler if you choose.
There will certainly be tornadoes in the future, hundreds of them happen every year. But there is no way of knowing exactly where or when they will occur.
The weather is unpredictable, so even tornadoes can't be predicted. A tornado can be generated at this time in any place on earth whereconditions are favorable. The places where you have the greatest chance to see thesephenomena are the U.S.A. (mainly inTornado Alley), Canada, northernMexico, Argent…ina, Uruguay, South Brazil, Europe, Russia, SouthAfrica, The valley of the Ganges, Bangladesh, eastern China, SouthKorea, Japan, The Philippines, west ernand east Australia, and NewZeland. If in these places there is a very intese thunderstorm calledsupercell there is afair chance that a tornado witll form,though not all supercells produce tornadoes. (MORE)
in the European/Mediterranean region Corsica is west of Italy and Cyprus is south of Turkey - Both in the Mediterranean Sea.
Yes. It's ranked in the Very High Human Development column on the Human Development Indicator (#31).
Cyprus is a country. Cypress is a type of tree. Cyprus and Cypress are homophonous in some pronunciations but notall. (It depends if you say sai-prus or sai-press.)
It's main exports are fruit and vegetables, herbs, seafood, textiles, light goods such as kitchen ware and plastic products, light industrial components, and domestic fittings such as baths, electric light fittings, sinks etc.
Cyprus doesn't have a Queen any longer, although Queen Elizabeth II was Head of State up until it gained Independence in 1960. Since then it has had a President, who is elected on a four year term of office.
It is impossible to answer this question for two reasons: . It is impossible to predict when a location will next be hit bya tornado unless that tornado will strike in the next few minutes. . Even if such predictions were possible, you do not provide anyinformation on your location. For informa…tion on current weather hazards in the United States,including tornadoes, you may refer tot he website of the NationalWeather Service. (MORE)
