What are tornadoes?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What are tornadoes?       
What are tornadoes? Tornadoes are violent destructive whirlwinds whose force is concentrated into a much smaller area than that of a hurricane. They are very common in the central United States, where they cause enormous damage. Tornadoes travel across the land at high speed, and the roaring noise they make can be heard 40 km away.

A tornado happens when huge masses of clouds moving in different directions meet. The air begins to spin in a spiral, and a funnel of twisting air reaches out towards the ground.

The low pressure in the funnel sucks up soil, dust and anything else it touches - even cattie.
