Central Texas Tornado Tips
So What Exactly Is a Tornado?
A tornado is a violent windstorm defined by a funnel-shaped cloud. Tornadoes can happen in different situations, such as thunderstorms or as a result of a hurricane. They are produced when cool air is on top of warm air, forcing the warm air to rise rapidly, creating a cyclone effect. Extremely high wind velocities in a tornado can create devastating damage and incredible loss of life and property in a very short amount of time. Almost all tornadoes occur in the late after noon and evening.
