This storyboard does not have a description.
Alarge thunderstorm takes place in a cumulonimbus cloud
A shift in wind direction and wind speed at high altitudes causes the air to spiral horizontally.
Ascending air from the ground pushes up on the spiralling air and tips it over.
The funnel of spiralling air begins to suck up more heated air from the ground
The funnel grows longer and expands toward the ground.
When the funnel reaches the ground it becomes a tornado
