Tornado

by Tyler

A tornado is a violent rotating column of air in lots of different shapes and sizes. Most tornadoes occur during April, May, and June. Occasionally two or more tornados may occur at the same time.

Most tornadoes form from thunderstorms when hot and cold air combine.

Tornadoes strike mostly flat land, but touch down over seas and lakes. When that happens they are called waterspouts.

They may strike quickly without any warning at all. Tornadoes are most likely to occur between 3 pm and 9 pm, but can occur at any time.

Some tornadoes may form during the early stages of rapidly developing thunderstorms. The funnel of the tornado is usually dark, grey or black.

Before a tornado hits, the wind may die down, and the air may become very still. In the US, tornadoes have occurred in every single month.

Make sure windows are closed and stay away from them. Get out of automobiles and do not go outside. If outside find shelter.
