Tornadoes represent some of the most destructive forces in the world. As a consequence, tremendous internal pressures mount as the trapped gases expand during ascent, before the pent-up pressure is suddenly released in a violent eruption. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? Note that for the Red River data, shown above, the April 18, 1997 flood had a discharge of 30,000 ft3/sec, which is equivalent to a 250-year flood.

We often equate deserts with sand dunes and of course many desert areas are sandy but deserts more commonly consist of bare, arid ground with small patches of poor vegetation. Actually, both plates are drifting away from each other -- at a rate of approximately 1 in (2.5 cm) per year. Did you know that the Earth is made up of different layers, and that some of these layers can move? Most of us today, if asked on a street corner, would say that we accept Copernicus's idea that the earth moves around the sun - we would say that the heliocentric theory seems correct.

The result is that theories come and go, or at least are modified through time, as old ideas are questioned and new evidence is discovered. The more common tornadoes have wind speeds of less than 110 miles (177 kilometers) per hour, are about 250 feet (76 meters) across, and travel only a few miles before they dissipate. In flood prone areas (basements), move valuable items and documents to table tops, away from windows, to prevent damage in the event of local flooding.

Rocks like basalt are immediately exposed to the atmosphere and weather. Where flooding occurs every year or every few years, the hazard becomes part of the landscape, and projects are sited and designed with this constraint in mind. Without doubt, however, the most devastating loss of life in recent years was the much larger 9.3 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake (the third largest ever recorded) / tsunami in late 2004 that is now estimated to have claimed 275,000 lives.

The Juan de Fuca and North American continental tectonic plates create this subduction zone, which is considered the “quietest subduction zone in the world” but is currently thought to be hiding one of the biggest seismic events of the century.
