Tornadoes are sometimes divided into "weak" tornadoes "strong" and "violent" tornadoes.

Weak tornadoes are those rated EF0 and EF1. Most tornadoes are weak.

Strong tornadoes are those rated EF2 and EF3.

Violent tornadoes are those rated EF4 and EF5. They are the rarest of tornadoes, only about 1% of tornadoes are this strong.

What general categories of functions are specified by computer instructions?

computers are categories into three. these are: 1) Supercomputer 2) Minicomputer 3) Microcomputer

There are no categories for waterspouts specifically. However, waterspouts that hit land are counted as tornadoes. Tornadoes are rated on the Enhanced Fujita scale, which has six levels from EF0 to EF5. Very few waterspouts are stronger than EF1.

There are 2 most general categories. These are metals and non-metals.

Tornadoes happen in Miami for the same reason they happen anywhere else. See the related question for how tornadoes form in general.

There is some debate among meteorologists, but the general consensus is that gustnadoes are not tornadoes, as they do not connect to the cloud base.

Yes. The Enhanced Fujita scale has six intensity categories ranging from EF0 for the weakest tornadoes to EF5 for the strongest. This identifies different levels of strength rather than actual types of tornado. As far as actual types, there are classic supercell tornadoes, which form from a larger mesocyclone, and weaker landspouts, which form as a result of processes beneath a thunderstorm.

"Water tornadoes," which are called waterspouts, are divided into two categories. Fair-weather waterspouts, are structured differently and generally weaker than classic tornadoes. Tornadic waterspouts are ordinary tornadoes that happen to be on water, they are just as strong as ordinary tornadoes.

If general weather conditions favor the formation of tornadoes then a tornado watch is issued.

The northern and eastern parts of Texas general experience the most tornadoes.

The United States averages about 1200 tornadoes per year, which would work out to about 3600 tornadoes in an average 3-year period.

On The Fujita scale and the later Enhanced Fujita scale there are 6 categories: F0 to F5 and EF0 to EF5 respectively. The TORRO scale, used by some European countries, has 12 categories from T0 to T11, with every two categories equivalent to one category on the Fujita scale.
