A boy with autism could not form connections with other people, but instantly bonded with his service dog upon meeting him for the first time.
It turns out that smoke from fires can actually intensify tornadoes. Scientists have taken a closer look at the effects of smoke resulting from spring agricultural land-clearing fires and found that they actually intensify tornado conditions.
Scientists have found that birds may be better at predicting storms than we are. It turns out that golden-winged warblers apparently knew in advance that a storm that would spawn 84 confirmed tornadoes was coming.
It turns out that tornadoes are occurring earlier and earlier in Tornado Alley. Scientists have found that tornado activity in the central and southern Great Plains is at its peak about two weeks earlier than half a century ago.
Climate change may be causing more droughts, but did you know that it might be causing more tornados? New research reveals that a changing climate may be playing a key role in the strength and frequency of tornadoes hitting the United States.
Much of a tornado's strength and height may be determined by climate change, according to researchers at Florida State University.
The massive storm outbreak that occurred in seven central and southern U.S. states on April 27 to 28 and which spawned tornadoes is now being looked at a bit more closely.
On June 2, 2013, the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument on NASA's Terra spacecraft captured this image showing the scar left on the landscape by the tornado's deadly track. In this false-color image, vegetation is red, water is dark blue, roads and buil...
NASA has released an image of the massive storm system that spawned the mile-wide tornado that slammed into Moore, Oklahoma. The system moved over the south central United States and was captured by various satellites in the area.
