A tornado is a column of air that rotates rapidly as it comes into contact with the Earth’s surface and a cumulonimbus cloud.

In rare cases, the earth’s surface comes in contact with the base of a cumulus cloud.

Other names are whirlwinds, twisters, or cyclones, depending on what part of the country you live in.

What is the same is how to survive a tornado without basement.

Tornadoes can be small or very large.

Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas are tornado prone areas.

The months April, May and June are when tornadoes usually hit the United States.

When a powerful tornado hit New Zealand, it caused significant damage to the country, especially in Taranaki and in National Park Village.

Several homes were destroyed. The tornado also knocked power posts and caused the collapse of upright objects.
