Tornado Photos

Photo of a tornado.

Caption: Tornadoes are dangerous, funnel-shaped storms that cause destruction when they come down to the ground. The winds in a tornado can be as high as 200 miles per hour - which is about three times as fast as a car on the freeway! The winds can be so strong they blow houses apart. Getting underground is the best thing to do in a tornado.
