How Tornadoes Form

Russell said they are finished with the primary assessment of the damage and are moving into the secondary assessments, checking more methodically in the morning.

  • Tornadoes are also not the only source of such sounds in severe thunderstorms; any strong, damaging wind, a severe hail volley, or continuous thunder in a thunderstorm may produce a roaring sound.

  • By comparison, during the same tornado outbreak, more than 2,000 homes were completely destroyed and another 7,000 damaged, and yet only a few dozen people died in their homes.

  • There are more than 230,000 trained Skywarn weather spotters across the United States.
