Caption: EF4 tornado near Albert Lea, Minnesota, USA. A tornado is a rapidly rotating funnel of air that can form below certain types of storm clouds. High wind speeds within the rotating funnel can cause immense destruction. This tornado, from a supercell thunderstorm, was one of 48 that touched down in Minnesota on 17 June 2010, one of the largest outbreaks ever recorded in the region. The tornado was rated an EF4 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. An EF4 tornado produces wind speeds between 267 and 322 kilometres per hour.
