What are the
potential warning signs?
How do you measure
a Tornado?
* EF scale (Enhanced Fujita scale)

* Intensities range:
Other tools used to
measure tornadoes
* Barometers

* Doppler Radar

* Turtles
How do tornadoes
It is not fully understood as to how exactly tornadoes form, grow and die. Meteorologist are still trying to solve the tornado puzzle. Every time a piece fits in, it uncovers a new piece which needs to be studied.
Who benefits from tornadoes?
Benefits from tornadoes:
* Vehicle repair shops
* Construction businesses
* Insurance adjustors
* Helps maintain a relative equilibrium in the atmosphere.
* Tornadoes can clear out old vegetation to make way for new growth.

How do tornado form?
The basic explanation is "warm moist Gulf air meets cold Canadian air and dry air from the Rockies". Tornadoes are formed by a funnel cloud touching the ground. It starts from a thunder storm, then it becomes a funnel cloud and finally when the funnel cloud touches the ground, it becomes a tornado.
