Before leaving a newspaper unattended on the street, first see the weather forecast. Namely, how strong the wind will be today. Because even a light breeze can carry your favorite morning press away from your home.

We are all familiar with the situation when “This Stupid Umbrella” can not resist the force of the wind and constantly turns around. It happens often at a meter from 16 km/h. “Chinese umbrellas can also turn inside out when the wind blows.

32 miles an hour – Blowing out the sunbeds.
If you lie down and sunbathe on the beach, and the wind blows strong, we recommend you not to get up from the lounge chair, so as not to lose it in the literal sense.

72 miles an hour – Breaks down fences.
Your fence will not be happy if the wind reaches about miles an hour. Then he’ll have to be propped up with something, or he’ll have to catch the planks that flew away.

88 miles an hour- Blows out the tiles
If a little wind force increases, then along with the fence will fly off your roof and tiles.

482 miles an hour – Inside the Tornado
This average wind speed is achieved inside a tornado.

In order to get the average person off the ground, a wind blowing with force and 100 miles an hour is enough. The main thing is to become at the right angle.


And we fly in a wind tunnel, where the flow speed can reach 300 miles an hour, which is more than enough to get a man off the ground. Especially if he lies down on his stomach, thereby increasing his area, creating more lifting power.
