Devastating Tornado Pictures
A tornado is a violent, dangerous, rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cloud. Tornadoes come in many shapes and sizes, but are typically in the form of a visible condensation funnel, whose narrow end touches the earth and is often encircled by a cloud of debris and dust. Most tornadoes have wind speeds less than 110 miles per hour (177 km/h), are approximately 250 feet (80 m) across, and travel a few miles (several kilometers) before dissipating. The most extreme can attain wind speeds of more than 300 mph (480 km/h), stretch more than two miles (3 km) across, and stay on the ground for dozens of miles (more than 100 km). With this speed, tornadoes, destroy everything which is found of their way. As you can see, the tornado is a very nasty natural disaster, but, there are people, who catch tornadoes, and enjoy taking images of them.
