|Description of a Tornado|
1. Day or night - Loud, continuous roar or rumble, which doesn't fade in a few seconds.
2. Strong, rotation in the cloud base.
|4. Hail or heavy rain followed by either dead calm or a fast, intense wind shift. Many tornadoes are wrapped in heavy precipitation and can't be seen.|
|5. Night - Small, bright, blue-green to white flashes at ground level near a thunderstorm (as opposed to silvery lightning up in the clouds). These mean power lines are being snapped by very strong winds, maybe a tornado.|
|6. Night - Persistent lowering from the cloud base, illuminated or silhouetted by lightning.
