Who many people can be affected with a tornado?
It depends. Some tornadoes tear across open countryside and don't affect anybody. In the worst cases a single tornado can affect tens of thousands, including dozens killed, hundreds injured, and thousands left homeless.
Generally you don't thrive during a tornado. For most, a tornado is an incredibly frightening experience. Even though most people affected by a tornado will escape without significant physical injury, there will still be the loss of property. Life during and immediately after a tornado could hardly be described as thriving.
They aren't the MOST affected, as all smaller animals than humans can be more easily lifted and thus are more affected than people are. The exception to this being birds, because they fly and are usually able to avoid the path of a tornado. Large animals on the other hand, like cows or giraffes, are not as affected because their weight provides more resistance to the tornadoes. Tornadoes can be dangerous cause to lift people…
No. A tornado is a localized event, usually not affecting more than a town or two. A tornado may lead to people leaving a town, or sometimes a tornado-prone region, but not usually a country. For example, many people left the small town of Greensburg, Kansas after most of it was destroyed by a tornado in 2007, but they all stayed in the United States.
There 20 tornadoes in Oklahoma on May 31, 2013. The main tornado of the event destroyed several homes and killed 8 people near the city of El Reno. The same thunderstorm later went on to produce four other tornadoes that affected Oklahoma City and its suburbs including Moore and Valley Brook. Another tornado from a different thunderstorm also affected Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa.
