It's important to remember that these observations come from a limited number of survivors and storm chasers. Being inside the eye of a tornado is exceedingly dangerous and not something one should ever attempt. The sudden calm should not be mistaken for the end of the storm, as the deadly winds will resume as soon as the tornado's eye passes. Even after his team found the tornado and drove along a dirt road in Iowa to a place they were fairly certain lay in its path. Samaras remained unsure of where exactly he should leave the probe. He stood watching the tornado boil toward him, then, at the last second, he jogged over, hefted the 80-pound (36-kilogram) probe, and shifted it 40 feet (12 meters) to the north. Samaras guessed right: The eye passed just 10 feet (3 meters) from the probe, giving the cameras the closest ever view of the fierce winds turning just off the ground around a tornado's center. Tornadoes are violent and destructive windstorms that are characterized by a rapidly rotating column of air connecting the surface of the Earth to a cumulonimbus cloud. Most of us are familiar with the ferocity of a tornado's outer winds, which can reach speeds of up to 300 miles per hour, leaving a path of utter devastation in their wake. Yet, the interior of a tornado, known as the eye or the 'eye wall', presents an entirely different picture.

Sycamore presents Fred Schepisi's, The Eye of the Storm" (PDF). Paper Bark Films EOS Pty Ltd. 18 August 2011. p.cover . Retrieved 25 December 2012.Panic sets in as the staff sense the impending end of their eccentric world. Mrs Hunter confesses her profound disappointment at failing to recreate the state of humility and grace she experienced when caught in the eye of a cyclone fifteen years earlier. Pride and Prejudice . This was a reread for me. I think I started it in August, but I finished it this month. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? I love this book. Just not as much as Emma. Still, it’s a 5 out of 5 for me. It reminded me of a story my dad told me while I was growing up. He grew up in Australia but moved to the USA for university, fell in love with my mother, and stayed. They were living in Kansas City at the time and there was a tornado warning. My parents shared a house with another couple, a man from New Zealand and an American woman from the Midwest like my mother.

It’s known to some as the dreaded pinhole because it tells meteorologists that there’s likely a significant hurricane associated with the storm’s small eye. If we placed cameras in the path of a tornado, they would either be damaged by the strong winds and swirling debris, or become so caked with mud and water that they wouldn’t produce any useful pictures. And of course, it’s not safe for humans to try to observe tornadoes at close range. It’s important to always seek shelter when tornado conditions develop. The 4:50 From Paddington . I read this for the #readmorechristie book challenge and #emmasbookishcorner challenge. The prompt for #emmasbookishcorner challenge was to read a book by Agatha Christie, and for #readmorechristie was to read one of her books featuring a female adventurer. I thought this one was perfect as you could consider there to be THREE female adventures in this book. The first is Mrs. McGillicuddy who witnessed the murder and tried to do something about it. The second is Jane Marple who heard about the murder from her friend, Mrs. McGillicuddy. And the third is Lucy Eyelesbarrow who Jane Marple enlists to help her find the body and solve the murder. I read this once (or twice) before and though I was fairly certain I remembered what happened it was still an enjoyable read. Definitely at least a 4 out of 5 star read.

The entire hurricane rotates around the eye, and it is usually 20-60 miles in diameter. When this part of the hurricane hits land, it is the calmest area inside of the storm. In fact, people often think the storm has passed and go outside only to be caught by the approaching eyewall. Overwater, however, the eye of a hurricane is one of the most dangerous places to be. Eyes less than 10 miles in diameter are known as a pinhole eye. Often, a pinhole eye is associated with a powerful hurricane. Some of the most destructive hurricanes have had pinhole eyes, and major hurricanes are classified as Category 3 or stronger. In a Sydney suburb, two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed. In dying, as in living, Mrs. Hunter remains a formidable force on those around her. It is via Mrs Hunter’s authority over living that her household and children vicariously face death and struggle to give consequence to life.
