Twister

There’s nothing more American than apple pie, Nick Offerman and… tornadoes? That’s right, the United States is the cyclone capitol of the world, with an average of 1,000 twisters touching down in the states each year. The second most tornado-prone country, Canada, records just 100 tornadoes each year.

So what makes tornadoes so quintessentially American? Is there something in our climate that makes us prone to this unpredictable form of extreme weather? And how much damage can a powerful tornado really cause?

Join us at the September installment of Final Fridays: Science and the Cinema to watch Twister and learn everything you ever wanted to know about tornadoes. We’ll host  Brice Coffer, Graduate Research Assistant in the Convective Storms Group at NC State University, as this month’s expert to help us separate the science from the “spin” following the screening. Don’t miss it!
