For those of you who don't live in the plains of North America, a tornado is a swirling mass of air, produced from thunder clouds, where wind speeds may vary from 40 - 300 miles per hour. However, tornadoes with speeds over 280 miles per hour are, fortunately,  not common.  Tornado strength is rated on the Fujita Scale with F0 being the weakest and F5 the strongest. However, on a very rare occasion an F6 could occur.

The effect on this page was produced by an applet written byFabio Ciucci.
