Sharknado!








Everybody's talking about the Sy Fy Channel's "Sharknado" movie last night! For a disaster movie, it sure was unintentionally hilarious....maybe one of the cheesiest movies you will see all year. Still, a lot of people are wondering........Could a Sharknado actually happen? Experts say NO....here's why:
 
From Mother Jones Magazine - 
 
"There are records of small fish being picked up by waterspouts, but sharks are pretty big and that makes it a lot harder" Harold Brooks, a senior scientist at NOAA's National Severe Storms Laboratory, insists. "And how are they gonna survive outside of the water? My guess is if [the tornado] gets some baby sharks, they might get thrown. But they wouldn't do a whole lot of damage—assuming they live." Brooks went on to say that if a twister were strong enough to scoop up a bunch of large sharks, the debris present in tornadoes—wood, metal—would essentially filet the animals. "The sharks would not be in very good shape," he says.
 


Chris Vaccaro, a spokesman for the National Weather Service, responded similarly: "Sharknadoseems to fulfill Syfy's description as 'a media destination for imagination-based entertainment,'" Vaccaro writes in a statement sent to Mother Jones. Even so, he humored me with his advice for sharknado readiness. "As with any waterspout or tornado, the best advice is to be in an interior part of the lowest floor of a sturdy building—and not outside, whether sharks are raining down or not."
 
Feel better? Good. Laugh away at the Sharnado replays with no guilt or worry!
