Tornado Size Comparison


Tornadoes are scary things. There is great uncertainty to when or where they will form and very little warning when we figure it out. The can come and go in minutes or last for hours. They can do minor damage or the sort that is unspeakable. They are a true terror, especially for much of the USA. But just how big do tornadoes get? This is a really great video comparing the different sizes of tornadoes throughout history.

From Youtube:

We compare the sizes of tornadoes to the biggest hurricanes. Including the world largest fire tornado, largest tornado El Reno, Tri State Tornado, Typhoon Tip and so on.
