Caption: Supercell tornado near Dupree, 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. One type of storm that can produce tornadoes is a supercell thunderstorm. Around a third of supercells produce tornadoes and are termed tornadic. This large and powerful supercell was observed on 16 June 2010, and produced around 20 separate tornadoes.
