Tornado MOh

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that spins while contact with the both the surface of the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud.

all natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and others, they end up with massive destruction to homes, property, infrastructure and cause many deaths.
Where do tornadoes occur? These conditions can produce rotating air masses. Tornadoes most frequently occur in the United States,The tornadoes usually occur in the southeastern state of Florida or in "Tornado Alley", the central part of the country (Midwest) where most of the violent tornadoes occur.
Causes: The intense spinning of a tornado is partly the result of the updrafts and downdrafts in the thunderstorm (caused by the unstable air) interacting with the wind shear, resulting in a tilting of the wind shear to form an upright tornado vortex.
Tornadoes effect the environment by destroying buildings and trees. Tornadoes also kill animals, which effects the food chain and disrupts the whole environment. Tornadoes destroy our farms, which means there will be food shortages around the surrounding area.

How does tornado form ? Most tornadoes form from thunderstorms. You need warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and cool, dry air from Canada. When these two air masses meet, they create instability in the atmosphere.
