Caption: EF4 tornado near Bowdle, South Dakota, 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 large wedge-shaped tornado was observed on 22 May 2010, and was the most powerful tornado produced during the tornado outbreak of 22-25 May 2010. Rated an EF4 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, it came close to being rated an EF5. An EF4 tornado produces wind speeds between 267 and 322 kilometres per hour.
