Caption: Tornado (lower left) forming over fields. A tornado is a violent rotating column of air that can form during the growth of a cumulonimbus (thunderstorm cloud). Large tornadoes, which form from severe thunderstorms called supercells (the large white cloud seen here), can be hundreds of metres across and travel many kilometres before dissipating. Wind speeds of hundreds of kilometres an hour can destroy houses and other objects in their path. Photographed near Bird City, Kansas, USA, on 29 June 2000.
