It's a twister!

Here we are again... Sitting in the basement eating dinner because of a tornado warning.

Did you know? according to Sky Diary Kids

Under the rain-free base of a supercell, look for a wall cloud to form. Out of this lowered area is where you are likely to see a tornado. But if you ever find yourself near a storm like this, watch out. Quick tornadoes can form out of other parts of the storm, too.

If a tornado watch is issued for your area, that means conditions are favorable for the formation of tornadoes. If a tornado warning is issued, that means that a tornado has been spotted or that radar is showing a possible tornado forming in a storm. Take the warning seriously! Don't bother to open windows to "equalize the pressure." That's a harmful myth that will lead to a bunch of rain and wind in your house.
