411 PAIN Tornado Warning

It’s not always sunny in the sunshine state, especially during hurricane season.  You are having a good day, driving to the beach, windows down while listening to nice music, but the radio news alert awakes you from your peace: “Tornado warning in south Florida!”  Although tornados and hurricanes are catastrophic, the main reason people die in bad weather is car wrecks.  About 7000 Americans die in these weather-related types of accidents each year.  If you have sustained injuries as a result of an accident contact 1-800-411-PAIN.  

Florida is one of the most challenging places to drive, especially south Florida where most hurricanes have a blast.  Tornados are also common in Florida.  Although there is warm weather all year round, most tornados occur in the summer between the hours of 3pm to 8pm.  Tornados originate from thunderstorms.  The warm, moist and cold drier air meets the vertical wind shear, forming a twister.  Some scientists believe the reason for most storm occurrences and tornado formation is global warming, but there is not a clear link or answer yet.

If you find yourself in the path of a tornado while driving, run for your life!  Cars and houses can be lifted by tornados.  Violent winds and heavy rain are typical and unavoidable.  The aftermath of a tornado can be very displeasing to the eye.  Although not all tornados produce heavy debris, the ones that do might carry large objects in the debris clouds.  These clouds initially only carry dust and small debris but the monster grows larger and larger as it eats up everything in its path.

Avoid driving during bad weather, but if going out is necessary then decide to be extra cautious.  Adapt your driving style to the conditions and contact 411 PAIN if you get involved in a crash in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, Orlando, Tampa, Clearwater, Fort Myers, Naples, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale or Miami.
