Tornado Warning, Preparedness, and Impacts

Description:

This special collection of Weather, Climate, and Society contains research on tornado hazards in three main areas. First, communication, perception, and response to tornado warnings is a major theme that is carried across through the role of, and design of, graphic communication, factors influencing response and protective actions, differences among tornado warning strategies, and associated damages and casualties. Other articles included also consider vulnerability, preparedness, and disaster assistance issues prior to and following an event. A third group of papers seeks to advance understanding of the spatial and temporal distribution of tornadoes, human exposure, vulnerability, casualties, and damage.
