Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes sweep through the southern Great Plains of the United States each year. Tornadoes are violently rotating columns of air associated with supercell thunderstorms. People living on the southern Plains accept twisters as part of their lives and culture. In fact, tornadoes are rooted in American science, popular culture, and the origin stories of the Kiowa people. In this presentation, participants will learn about the origin story of tornadoes, supercell thunderstorms, tornado geography, how people cope with the threat, and storm chasing stories. Dr Palmer is a member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma.
