Within "Tornados" topics of meteorological observation and Social Sciences are combined, regarding the occurrence of the tornado in Piedras Negras-Rosita Valley, on April 24, 2007. The approach, of a multidisciplinary nature, maintains that the problems that are investigated They do not have a single way of explanation, to show a tangible utility in protecting the lives of the people who inhabit our territory. For this reason, this work provides extensive information on the characteristics that surround tornadoes in order to understand them and be protected.
It documents and contributes to the understanding of a problem that affects Mexican society and that has practically not been addressed by those who have the responsibility to do so. In this way, we place CIESAS on the path of fulfilling its responsibilities as an institution that produces knowledge and solutions.
