I think hurricanes are better thentornados because sometimes hurricanes can make tornados and they are bigger,so it can destroy more if it just stayed in one spot.So that is why I think a hurricane is better then a tornado.

I feel a hurricane is worse than a tornado. Why? Because a hurrican is much larger. on Google i typed in how wide is a hurrican and it said it can be as wide as 300 miles! you might laugh at what i am fixing to say. a world record of how wide a tornado was is 2.5 miles! also i looked on Google images and saw a car burried in the sand and it looked like it was in the middle of nowhere! a tornado rips apart things if it touches it, but a hurricane does the same but with all the stuff i just said. these are the reasones why i think a hurrican is worse than a tornado.

Kate, I agree a hurricane is a lot bigger. I think a hurricane is worse because hurricane has high wind, lots of water, can cause flooding ,and is a lot bigger.

I think a hurricane is stronger and larger than a tornado. After a tornado, one house can be severely damaged, and the one next to it can be completely untouched. This is because a tornado isn't nearly as wide as a hurricane is. A tornado has much stronger winds, though. A hurricane doesn't just affect the area with the warning. Often, the places around it get heavy rainfall and occasionally floods happen.

In my opinion a hurricane is bigger why I say this and think this is because tornados you know stay where they are. On the other hand hurricanes go a lot of places. Now why I think hurricanes can do a lot more damage to earth and people is because of their wind speeds.
Did you know wind speeds can get up to 74- 95 miles per hour maybe even a lot more! So those are just a couple of reasons why I think that Hurricanes can damage the earth more than tornados.

I think that hurricanes are worse because they cover more land and tornados follow a path. A tornado can hit one house and its neighbor does not get touched by the tornado.

I am adding to what I said before. I think hurricanes are worse because they cover more land and they destroy more homes and buildings. I have been in a tornado in Kansas and it was not as bad as when I was in Rhode Island and they had to board up the windows and it was much worse.

I think a hurricane would do more damage than a tornado. I think this because on www.theweatherchannelkids.com it said,"A hurricane happened in 1969 and killed 256 people!'' In a tornado it said,"A tornado will usually not kill anyone. But it is very rare for a killer tornado to appear." This is why I think a hurricane would do more damage than a tornado.

Caroline, I agree with you. Since a hurricane can go up to 74-95 miles per hour, it can definitely cover more area and kill more things than a tornado!

Caroline, I am not trying to correct you, but I wanted to tell you that even though a hurricane can have a wind speed of 74 - 92 mph, a tornado's wind speed is 200 to 500 mph! So a tornado's winds are actually a lot stronger than a hurricane's winds...

I think that a tornado will cause more destruction because a tornado affects a larger area than a hurricane. I used the link above and it showed me the area that a tornado is possible and also where a hurricane can happen. When a hurricane hits land it starts to lose its power. When a tornado hits a house or structure it pretty much destroys it carrying pieces of debris to cause more damage. That is why I think a tornado would cause more damage than a hurricane.

Carter- I agree, because tornadoes are formed on land and can destroy more things. And Emily, I agree with you too because of the wind speeds and a tornado doesn't have to be really big to be destructive.

I think that hurricanes are more destructive and more harmful. I think that because hurricanes knock over trees, houses ,sky scrapers , and buildings . Hurricanes also flood everything as far as the eyes can see. I`ve heard that a whole family lived when a tornado lifted there house up, which is evidence that hurricanes are more dangerous.

Both hurricanes and tornados are definitely mother nature at work! I agree with everyone who thinks hurricanes are worse than tornados, but does anyone think people have more time to take safety and prepare for a hurricane than a tornado?
It seems hurricanes might be easier to predicit early on whereas a tornado just comes and goes as it pleases!

i think a hurricane would do more damage because it destroys trees and houses, causes storm surges that flood, and ends in a rainfall. although a tornado has higher windspeeds, it usually only lasts for ten minutes.

I think tornados are worse because they can lift and fling objects and form virualy anywhere, even on other planets. Even though hurricanes can form on other planet such as the Big Red Spot on Jupitor on, Earth they only form over oceans and what does make it's way to land is only on the coast line so it can't hurt states such as Arkansas.

I think Hurricanes are worse then tornadoes... Tornadoes just goes on down the state. Before I was little a Tornado was infront of my house my sister and I was next to the screen door we didn't have a basement but it passed didn't touch us. So we moved down close to the old house now... I still got the day in my head. The year was 2011... My mom and I still clean up the house get everything over as we can but now we are doing good with the other kids. atleast we are not fighting as we use to. Well I am doing a speech about Tornadoes, I gotta find a website for it so I am working hard as I can.
