Texas Tornados & Twisters Cause Significant Damage
Many tornadoes do not reach wind speeds over 110 mph, but some can reach around 300 mph. Tornadoes have been the subject of many horror films because of their devastating effects. Their characteristic appearance is a long funnel that stretches down from cumulonimbus clouds and reaches the ground. Tornadoes are most prone to occur in what has been nicknamed the "Tornado Alley" of the United States. This region, described above, is made up mostly of the area between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains, or the Great Plains.
Depending on the type of tornado that your property encounters, the damages will vary. One type of tornado is the supercell tornado, which is also the most dangerous. This is a type of prolonged thunderstorm that turns into a low positioned tornado. Landspouts are another common type of tornado. Although they carry less speed than supercells, they produce what is known as a "gust front" with incredibly high winds. Tornadoes can occur almost anywhere, but many are seen in Texas every year and can cause homeowners thousands of dollars in damages.
