Abstract

I did this project because I wanted people to know what the risk of tornadoes in Washington is. The question I answered was, how has the number of tornadoes in Washington change over the years. I had to do my research on tornadoes in Washington first. Next, I wrote my lab report, research write-up, science fair report, and abstract. I have found that Washington receives tornadoes only once or twice a year. Since I have shown that tornadoes in Washington are rare, we can conclude that tornadoes are not a danger if you live in Washington state.[/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTNDYSUyMGlkJTNEJTIyT2FuZEklMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZhJTNF[/vc_raw_html][vc_separator color=”black” el_width=”80″ css_animation=”none”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Research Write Up

Prior Knowledge

I know that tornados have occurred in every state except Hawaii. The middle of the U.S is known as tornado alley because that is where the most tornados occur. One of the states in tornado alley Nebraska. Part of northern Texas is part of tornado alley. When a tornado goes over water it becomes a waterspout. Tornados are also known as twisters.
I’m interested in this question because I want to know if I need to worry about tornados happening in Washington.

Research summary
The document tells that tornados have occurred in every state and on every continent except Antarctica. It also says that at 30-50 degrees north and south, tornados are more likely. It also states that the places that have the most tornados also have the most fertile farmland. It also says that the U.S. have the most tornados. The document also shows at the top what the average number of tornados is for each state.
The document says that a tornado touched down in Port Orchard. It also says that the tornado was the strongest in the state since 1986. The document also says that King County has only had 5 tornados. It also says that Washington averages 3 tornados a year. It says that Seattle’s strongest storm was on December 12, 1969.
The document shows what the average number of tornados per state is. It shows that during May, Washington gets an average of 1 tornado. It also says that during June, Washington gets an average of 1 tornado. It shows that May and June are the only months that Washington gets tornados.

The document talks about the tornado that landed in Port Orchard. It says that it was an EF-2. Washington has only had a dozen EF-2s since 1954. It also says that over 100 tornados have hit Washington since 1954. Washington has had 3 EF-3s. The only tornado that killed someone in Washington was on April 5, 1972. It killed 6 people and injured over 300.

The document says that a weak tornado blew through Monroe. The document says that 85% of tornados in Washington are rated as 0-1 on the Fujita scale. It also says the total number of deaths is, 6 people dead and 303 injured. It says that in 1972, Washington had the most deaths by tornado in the country. The document says that most tornados form during spring and fall. In 1977, 14 tornados hit Washington.

The document says that until March 25, Washington had more tornados that the Midwest states. It also says that the only other tornados that happened were in the southeast. It also says March is usually the beginning of tornado season.

The document says that a tornado landed in Port Orchard. It also talks about how a tornado forms. It also shows video of the tornado. It also says that there was one other tornado that struck that area in 1991.

Refined knowledge & questions

In “U.S. tornado climatology,” the most relevant information is the map showing the average number of tornados per state. In “how rare are tornados in Washington? A look at the state’s storm history,” the most relevant information is the fact that +100 tornados have touched down in Washington since 1954. In “rare December tornado rips into homes in the Seattle area,” the most relevant information is that King County has only had 5 tornados. In “the tornado in Monroe was small and rare, but Washington state is no stranger to twisters,” the most relevant information is that in 1977, 14 tornados hit Washington. In “25-year average number of tornados per state by month. (all tornados, 1989-2013),” the most relevant information is that an average of 2 tornados hit Washington each year. In “Strange but true: Washington has more tornadoes this year than Midwest states,” the most relevant information is that a tornado landed in Gig Harbor. The most relevant info from “how did a tornado form in Kitsap County?” was that in 1991, a tornado struck the area of Port Orchard. The most relevant info from “Rare tornado touches down near Seattle, causing catastrophic damage,” is that a tornado formed in Port Orchard. In, “Rare Washington state tornado strongest since 1986,” the most relevant information is that a tornado landed in Port Orchard. In “Tornadoes rare-but not impossible- in Puget Sound area,” the most relevant information is that tornadoes are a rare occurrence in Washington. [/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTNDYSUyMGlkJTNEJTIyVGFuZE0lMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZhJTNF[/vc_raw_html][vc_separator color=”black” el_width=”80″ css_animation=”none”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Insights and Reflections

This Lab has shown what is the danger of a tornado forming in the state of Washington. Since in the past decade there have only been three tornadoes in Washington, there is almost no danger of a tornado forming in Washington. This shows that Washington is relatively safe from tornadoes. This experiment might have gone better if I found more data because I didn’t find any data on 2010-14 so I had to assume that there were no tornadoes during those years. [/vc_column_text][vc_raw_html]JTNDYSUyMGlkJTNEJTIyQmliJTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGYSUzRQ==[/vc_raw_html][vc_separator color=”black” el_width=”80″ css_animation=”none”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
