A new research project will use drones to study tornadoes. Drones can take measurements at any altitude up to about 2,500 feet — higher than measurements by ground stations and storm-chasing vehicles.
Fewer twisters than in any three-year period since records began
DENVER (AP) — Researchers say they have collected promising weather data by flying instrument-laden drones into big Western and Midwestern storms. Now, they want to expand the project in hopes of learning more about how tornadoes form.
Aileen Graef WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A study from the journal Current Biology found birds can possibly sense natural disasters like tornadoes before they happen, giving them time to flee.
Ecologists say birds could hear the oncoming storm from over 100 miles away

Scientists said on Thursday that little songbirds known as golden-winged warblers fled their nesting grounds in Tennessee up to two days before the arrival of a fierce storm system that unleashed 84 tornadoes in ...
