Tornado Hits London!

Just in - Fox is showing the Sky News feed. It's no wonder they're all up in arms over global warming over there. From the helicopter view, it looks like roofs were torn off but not much other structural damage as London structures are pretty solid. Hopefully tornadoes over there don't catch on and start attacking the more vulnerable caravan parks up north.

I saw a tornado hit the Chicago Loop in 1992. It popped out a window about 30 floors up in the Sears Tower and sucked all the papers off some poor bastard's desk. You could see his hand scrabbling to retrieve the report he'd been working on for weeks as it disappeared into the twister. But, tornadoes aren't a match for skyscrapers (unlike trailers) so it dissipated quickly.

I've wondered how much an impact trees have on tornadoes and other wind storms. Where I live in NJ there's lots of tall oaks in the 80 - 100 ft range - my guess is they do a pretty good job of knocking down windspeeds and preventing widespread damage (power outages are rare). Of course when one of these comes down, yikes.

There were some 150 foot oak trees taken down by tornadoes in a heavily wooded section of Morris County, NJ, so I guess your tree theory is bunk.

Tornadoes are most prevalent on the treeless Great Plains because they can get started more easily there.
