Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

We stayed last winter in Netsel - they are safe. BUT we knew bad winds were coming from the direction of Yacht Marina when the marina went around putting extra lines on boats - the narrow area at YM really funnels the winds a bit - when we left we listed that as one reason we did not want to be in YM besides a lot of other issues.

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

Are they sure that's not a waterspout? A tornado would be throwing catamarans around.

Not even close... Lol

We have these in Florida constantly. A tornado would throw the docks and catamarans through the air. Tornadoes throw cars around on land and level buildings.

Probably an English translation issue.

Normally not as powerful as on land but have been known to cause damage in coastal areas..

Weather: Tornado hits Portuguese coast

@Chotu

In the very Wiki article you mentioned it states:

"... In the common form, it (a waterspout) is a non-supercell*tornado*over water.[1][2][3]..."

So waterspout = in general a tornado over water.
Your call.

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

Here is an easy way to determine the difference between a tornado and a waterspout of non tornadic origin. Notice the rotation in the clouds. Dead give away it's a tornado. The U.S. is the world leader for tornados. We even have an expanse of real estate in the central U.S. called Tornado Alley.

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

And your point is?

To anything hit by this, I guess the difference is purely academic.
Unless one needs the definition to feel great again....

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

Some Tornado purists seem to think that all tornado's are alike in ferocity. The Fujita tornado damage scale says differently.

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

Not trying to be contentious but there is a huge difference between tornados and waterspouts. A tornado can be a waterspout but a waterspout can't be a tornado. The savage nature of tornados is sufficient to level entire cities. Were the waterspouts in previous posts tornados the damage would be severe even for an EF1. The windows would be sucked out of buildings and the boats in the marina would be shredded. I sailed through a rotating thunderstorm that developed into a tornado that devastated the area just north of Cobourg, Ontario, Canada a few years ago. Waterspouts are not to be trifled with but never develop the ferocity of tornados. Here is the Fujita Scale: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enhanced_Fujita_scale Interesting stuff.

Re: Tornado ripped through Marmaris Yacht Marina

An F1 at the highest range would cause significant damage but not likely to level cities. An F0 has winds under 73 mph and will cause light damage or none. An F5 however will destroy most of what it touches. They do not all have the same ferocity. Now I understand that the US no longer uses the Fajita scale but the new enhanced US developed super scale has an EF 0 rating that is touted as causing minor damage.

Very true DeepFrz. Although an EF0 is assigned in open areas where no damage would be possible. The EF1 is the same but occurs in areas where damage is possible. Broken windows, shingles gone and some trees uprooted. In the video I don't see the rotation in the clouds which is necessary for a tornado (Supercell). I also believe the area the videos are being filmed have enough stuff to suffer damage from even an EF1. The video does indeed show a rather nasty waterspout that light damage would most likely occur. Those of us in North America have the distinction of having most of the world's tornados. Still one of my favorite natural phenomena whether it be tornado or waterspout.
