Google : tornado

Tornadoes - nature's most violent storm, comes in many shapes, sizes, and speeds! Most of the ones we are familiar with are landspouts - violent rotating columns of air that make contact with the ground, and some are waterspouts - which simply means the rotating air is on the water not land (such as in pic 1)... Tornadoes are thunderstorms gone bad basically... they cause massive amounts of damage and can start off from a simple storm and create a super cell of clouds (pic 3) that spread out wide and grow in height! A tornado can go anywhere from 40 mph-110 mph! Scary for sure... here are a few pics of the real deals!
