  2. 2. What is Tornado Tornadoes are fierce rotating columns of air that are in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cloud. These tornadoes mostly occur in the United States. As the warm air flows upwards, a downward air cur- rent forms, creating a thunderstorm. If a strong wind blows through the clouds, it twists the rising air currents into a whirlwind. This whirlwind spins faster and faster until it forms a tornado. Hot air Tornado Cloud Copyright 2012 Mocomi & Anibrain Digital Technologies Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved.© UNF FOR ME!
