Tornados are destructive

Did you know that a tornado is:  A violently rotating column of air, in contact with the ground, either pendant from a cumuliform cloud or underneath a cumuliform cloud, and often (but not always) visible as a funnel cloud.

They are classified as being between F-O and F-5 in strength.  F5 tornadoes can be a mile and a half wide and have speed over 260 miles per hour.  Since you can’t measure the speed of a tornado, people look at the damage they have done to figure out how strong they were.   My papa built a website for a customer who sells tornado shelters, so he is helping me with this post. You can look at that website by clicking HERE.

Above are some really cool pictures:

    Leah you are so right. Tornados are by far the most destructive forces we deal with woth my company. They are typically just isolated, unlike hurricanes which are more widespread, but generally not as strong. My favorite pic on this one is the split tornado that makes a heart. It’d God’s way of saying that he loves us<3
