OUTLINE FOR INFORMATIVE SPEECH
Purpose:To inform the audience about tornadoes
Thesis: Today I will discuss some fascinating facts about tornadoes.Specifically,I will discuss the causes,occurrences,myths,and oddities associated with tornadoes.
Organizational Pattern: Topical
A. Attention Getter- Have you ever seen a tornado or known someone who has?
B. Relevance-Tornadoes can be devastating and can occur anywhere at anytime so you may be affected by one or know someone who will.
C. Credibility-I am fascinated by tornadoes and have done research in the last couple weeks preparing for this speech.
D. Thesis-Today I will discuss some fascinating facts about tornadoes.
E. Preview-Specifically, I will discuss the causes,occurrences,myths,and oddities associated with tornadoes.
Transition-First, I will discuss the causes.
A. What causes a tornado?
1. According to an American Red Cross brochure,tornadoes occur when thunderstorms develop in warm,moist air in advance of east ward-moving cold fronts.These thunderstorms often produce large hail,strong winds and tornadoes.
2. Also,according to the Red Cross brochure,tornadoes occur during the sping in the Central Plains along a ?dryline? which seperates very warm,moist aire to the east from hot,dry air to the west.Tornado-producing thunderstorms may form as the dryline moves east during the afternoon hours.
Transition-Next,I will discuss occurrences.
B. Tornadoes can occur at any place or anytime.
1. According to the 199 Weather Guide Calender, ?tornadoes have been reported in every month of the year somewhere in the U.S.On average there are about 800 tornadoes a year in the U.S CAUSING ABOUT 80 DEATHS
2. In fact, Infoplease.com reports that among the 25 deadliest tornadoes,the top-ranked deadly tornadoes occurred in Mississippi,Georgia,Wisconsin, and Michigan.
Transition-My third point is myths.
C. There are many myths that people have about tornadoes
1. According to infoplease.com, the first myth is that areas near rivers,lakes,and mountains are safe from tornadoes.In fact, no place is safe. In the late 1980s,a tornado swept throughYellowstone National Park.
2. The second myth is that the low pressure in a tornado causes buildings to explode when in fact,the structural damage is caused by wings exceeding 200 miles per hour.
3. Another myth is that windows should be opened before a tornado approaches to equalize pressure and minimize damage when all this does ia allow damaging winds to enter and wastes your time getting to a safe palce.
Transition- Finally, tornadoes produce certain oddities.
D. Oddities can and have occurred during tornadoes.
1. Larry Sessions labels these as AWSOME Observations which stands for ?Anomalous Weather Event Seen Over Mother Earth
2. According to sessions,?there are fairly well substantiated cases of it raining not cats and dogs(or cows as we all saw in the movie,?Twister?) but turtles and frogs(as well as an assortment of fishes,snakes,insects and many other living and non-living items).
3. Also,according to the 1996 Weather Guide,there have been reports of record albums lodged in telephone polls,boards lodged into trees,and even the?de-feathering? of chickens.
Transition In conclusion,
A. I have discussed the causes,occurences,myths,and oddities associated with tornadoes.
B. Perhaps now you are more informed about the devasting impact tornadoes can have on the lives of those who find themselves in the path of one.
