Tornado Alert Supporting Research

The Science of Tornado Alert

Listening for unique electromagnetic signatures
The science of Magnetohydrodynamic Tornadoes was first theorized in the 1920s. Over the subsequent decades, research has been undertaken at many of the world’s leading universities and at NASA and NOAA, resulting in the discovery of frequencies that are emitted from tornados when formed. Remarkably, it was in space where the tweaks, chorus, whistlers, auroral kilometric radiation, and comparative measurements from Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn, including the most powerful storm ever recorded in the entire solar system by Cassini at Saturn, were discovered.

Tornado Alert works even during electrical blackout
The most devastating effect of electrical storms, including tornadoes, is the electrical blackout that occurs in the heart of a storm, rendering traditional warning technology useless. Radio and cell signals are disrupted due to immense electromagnetic interference, and often power lines are ripped up by tornadoes, taking out the power grid, thus causing a loss of power for televisions, internet and methods of alert that depend on electricity to operate. Tornado Alert detects the electromagnetic frequencies directly and has a battery backup in the likelihood of a loss of power.

Based on over 40 years of scientific research
Based on over 40 years of scientific research, Tornado Alert is the world’s first personal tornado, lightning and severe weather detector. With 95% accuracy, tornado alert will warn you faster than any weather radio or news broadcast. Existing alerting and warning technologies that rely on radio, internet, TV broadcast or SMS messages typically fail, for example, in the event of a power cut, loss of cell coverage or electrical interference — all common side effects of electrical storms; tornado alert continues to monitor the proximity of these dangers to your exact location.

Recent Research

Tornadoes and Electrical Activity:

NASA Space Weather and Tornadic Electricity:

NOAA & NASA GOES R Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM)

GLM will measure total lightning activity continuously over the Americas and adjacent ocean regions with near uniform spatial resolution of approximately 10 km. GLM will provide early predictions of intensifying storms and severe weather events. It will also provide data for long-term climate studies.

Warning Delays

NOTE: The current warning system and centralized strategy: 10%-15% of all tornado warnings have zero or negative lead times depending on the region of the country. Negative lead times are warnings issued after the tornado is already on the ground. “Warning optimally for currently unwarned or under-warned tornadoes could reduce fatalities by about 18 percent and injuries by 24 percent.” (International Journal of Mass Emergencies and Disasters November 2006, Vol. 24, No. 3, pp. 351–369 Improvements in Tornado Warnings and Tornado Casualties)

NOTE: Special thanks to Al Tejera, Micheal Nagy, Micheal Zaccari, Sheryl Zavion, Dr. Eric Palm, Dr. Tim Murphy, several individuals at Hiden Analytics and Charles Chandler for their reviews and contributions that made these videos possible.

A special note of gratitude to Charles Chandler whose inspirational work over the past decade on the limitations of the thermodynamic theory of tornadoes and advancement of the MHD theory of tornadoes and his experience with challenging the established mainstream scientific community with an institutionalized resistance to change gave me the courage to add my contribution to the advancement of science. We share a mutual experience, if not a common understanding.
