WHAT IS A TORNADO?

As hurricane, tornado is a powerful vortex, which is particularly often visits the South coast of North America. This rapidly rotating air column with a diameter of only several hundred meters.

When the tornado is not warm air rises and the cold of the high layers of the atmosphere goes down. From a thunderstorm cloud to the ground extended funnel consisting of water vapor and air, the so-called "trunk tornado". Speeds ranging from 50 to 100 km per hour, he rushes over land, sucking in its rotation and destroying everything that comes his way. Sometimes tornadoes are observed over the sea.

The tornado raging from a few seconds to several hours. While the path of a hurricane can be accurately traced to predict tornado today is almost impossible.
