Tornadoes: Why They Happen and What Makes Them So Violent
At 11 am and Noon
Tornadoes get a lot of attention around here for good reason! They’re more common and often more destructive in Alabama and our neighboring states than anywhere else on Earth. It all starts with something so simple that you’ve probably overlooked it before: warm water. News 19 Chief Meteorologist Jason Simpson shows you from start to finish where these storms come from, why we have so many, and how you can plan to deal with severe weather threats that come our way.
