Tornado season is upon us! They are most common in Ohio in the spring and summer, with the highest activity spanning May through July.
Tornadoes are relatively short-lived local storms. They are composed of violently rotating columns of air that descend in the familiar funnel shape from thunderstorm cloud systems. The weather conditions that tend to generate tornadoes are unseasonably warm and humid earth surface air, cold air at middle atmospheric levels and strong upper-level jet stream winds.
Tornadoes can have devastating consequences. You could be anywhere when one strikes. Sheakley would like to help increase your awareness whether you are at home, outdoors, or on the road. To read more about how to prepare for a potential tornado, click here.
