A few weeks ago I had a post that featured some pretty interesting natural disasters pictures. Personally I think it’s amazing when “God lets us know how small we really are.” I hope some of you got that reference. If not, then you clearly need to watch more movies with Patrick Swayze. In any event, it really is amazing though.
Once in a while all the forces of earth gather together to show us who is really boss. And no more badass a natural disaster is the tornado.
Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms. Spawned from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes can cause fatalities and devastate a neighborhood in seconds. A tornado appears as a rotating, funnel-shaped cloud that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground with whirling winds that can reach 300 miles per hour. Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and 50 miles long. Every state is at some risk from this hazard.
So while they look really cool, it’s probably best to stay away from them. In any event, here are 15 pictures of some pretty wild tornadoes.
