A tornado is the strongest of all storms. In a tornado, air twists and swirls very fast over land. Tornadoes form under thunderclouds. There must be a layer of warm, wet air near the ground and a layer of cool air above. The different types of air change places quickly and begin to spiral around, forming a spiral. Most wind in a tornado blows in a counterclockwise direction.
Locations of Tornadoes
United States has more tornadoes than any other country. Most of these storms happen in a place people call Tornado Alley. It is in the Midwestern and Southern states, especially Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa. Tornadoes can also strike other parts of the world. Australia is second in how many tornados it has.
