Here comes Tornado, the noisiest, messiest, and
dirtiest hog in the house.
The most violent of atmospheric storms, a tornado is a powerful vortex, or "twister," whose rotational speeds are estimated to be close to 480 kilometers per hour but may occasionally exceed 800 kilometers per hour. The direction of rotation in the Northern Hemisphere is usually, though not exclusively, counterclockwise.
Tornadoes are very, very fast moving!
