No. a typical tornado moves between 25 and 40 mph. Winds in a tornado are faster, however. Some tornadoes can produce winds in excess of 300 mph, but only within a small portion of the tornado and no single location would experience such winds for more than a few seconds. The rest of the tornado will produce significantly slower, though still very strong winds. Tornadoes this strong are very rare however. Most tornadoes have peak winds of less than 110 mph.
1,000/6 = 1662/3 miles per hour
The record is around 300 mph.
In rare cases wind speeds in a tornado can exceed 300 mph (480 km/h).
The pressure inside a tornado is low compared to its surroundings, though exactly how low pressure can get in a tornado is unknown as few measurements have been taken, but it is generally accepted that the lower the pressure in a tornado, the stronger it is. Wind in a tornado moves in a circular fashion very rapidly, so the tornado is actually a type of powerful vortex. On rare occasions these winds can exceed 200 or even 300 mph (320 or 480 km/h). In addition winds in a tornado move upward very quickly at speeds similar to those of the rotation. Air near the tornado spirals inward
Yes. Very strong tornadoes can in fact have winds well over 300 km/h. In one tornado winds to over 480 km/h were recorded. On the Enhanced Fujita scale a tornado with winds estimated at 300 km/h would be rated EF4, the second highest level on the scale. An EF5 tornado, the highest level, has winds over 322 km/h. However, most tornadoes are not this strong and only earn ratings of EF0 or EF1 with winds ranging from 105 to 177 km/h.
There is no such thing as a category 5 tornado. Category 5 is a rating on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale. The highest rating for a tornado is EF5 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, which has estimated peak wind speeds of greater than 200 miles per hour. Winds may exceed 300 miles per hour. This is not the same as travel speed. The speed at which a tornado travels is unrelated to its rating. A typical tornado travels at about 30 miles per hour, but may be stationary or move faster than 70 miles per hour. A category 5 hurricane has sustained winds of at least 157 miles per hour. A typical hurricane travels at 10 to 25 miles per hour.
Yes. A tornado is very powerful and dangerous, a tornado is very similar to a twister. It consists of winds traveling up to 300 miles per hour, some tornado's winds even travel faster.
A tornado typically moves between 25 and 45 miles per hour, however, tornadoes have been known to move up to 70 mph.
In rare cases the winds in a tornado may exceed 300 miles per hour, though only small portions of the path would be affected by such extreme winds. The wind in most tornadoes will not be over 100 miles per hour.
The very strongest tornadoes produce winds that can exceed 300 miles per hour, but such tornadoes are rare. Most tornadoes are much less intense, with peak wind speeds of 100 miles per hour or less. For clarification, a mile is a unit of distance, not speed. Not tornado is anywhere near 300 miles across.
60 miles in one hour 300 miles in (300/60) = 5 hours
No. Tornadoes don't get anywhere close to that size. The widest tornado ever recorded was 2.6 miles wide at its maximum. A hurricane, on the other hand, can easily reach a width of 300 miles.
300 miles an hour
50 miles in 10 minutes is the same as 300 miles per hour, since 50 miles/10 minutes * 60 minutes/1 hour = 300 miles per hour
You cannot convert between the two. 300 miles per hour is a measure of speed. A mile is a measure of distance.
300 kilometers per hour is 186.41 miles per hour.
