TEXT. Read the following text and choose the best answer for each item. (5 points)

Two of the most dangerous storms in America are hurricanes and tornadoes. All of those who live in the area where they can occur fear them.
Hurricanes, which usually develop between July and October, originate over the waters of the Caribbean Sea. They move upwards to the continental U.S., somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean. When they reach the land, they are incredibly powerful and are accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds. These winds can travel at over 120 kilometres per hour, and cover an area of over 900 kilometres. Every year homes are destroyed by them and lives are often lost. Most people who live near the south coast are forced to evacuate their homes and move to safer areas until the storm passes.
If you travel to the Midwest, you probably won’t encounter a hurricane, but there is another kind of storm there which is almost as bad. It is called a tornado. Tornadoes are violent storms with an intense wind which is capable of lifting trees, cars and even heavier objects such as homes into the air. These storms occur mostly in summer and can be identified by their strong wind and lack of rain. Tornadoes normally travel at around 60 kilometers per hour and the winds can reach up to 800 kilometers per hour. Tornadoes are most frequent in the United States, east of the Rocky Mountains, and especially in the Mississippi area, where about 150 occur each year.
Both hurricanes and tornadoes cause millions of dollars worth of damage each year. Today they can be predicted more easily than in the past, but they cannot be stopped. When they come, the people affected by them have to endure them, with the hope that they will survive them.
