A tornado is a whirling, funnel-shaped air storm that extends from a thunderstorm and comes in contact with the ground. Tornadoes are one of the most dangerous storms. It has the potential to demolish a whole neighborhood and kill many people in a matter of seconds. People can be injured directly by a tornado, but they can also be injured after the storm when walking over debris or inside damaged structures. Tornadoes can strike fast and without warning.
Sometimes tornadoes are easily observable, while others are nearly invisible until dirt and wreckage are swept up or a swirl formed in the tornado. A tornado’s average forward speed is roughly 10–20 mph, but it can vary between 0 and 70 mph.
