WHAT IS A HURRICANE?
A hurricane is a large storm that forms over warm ocean water with very strong winds.
Hurricanes can have speeds at up to 190 mph (300 kilometers) an hour.
During a hurricane, you should stay in a small room with no windows. Also have a can opener, canned food, water, a flashlight, batteries, a first-aid kit, and a weather radio
WHAT IS A TORNADO?
A tornado is a large, funnel-shaped cloud that can tear down houses and pick up cars.
Unlike a hurricane, a tornado is only about 10 to 15 minutes long!
During a tornado, you should stay in a basement, cellar, or a small room with no windows.
WHAT IS A THUNDERSTORM?
A thunderstorm is a large storm with rain, thunder, lightning, and strong winds.
When a thunderstorm strikes lightning, it comes from the ground, not the sky.
During a thunderstorm, you should stay inside and as close to ground as you can get because lightning goes for the highest objects first.
