A tornado is a violently rotating column of air extending from the base of a thunderstorm down to the ground.
While much of the focus during severe weather is on tornadoes, wind and hail, there are actually more deaths caused each year by flooding and lightning, which are also commonly associated with severe weather.
Tornadoes are capable of completely destroying well-made structures, uprooting trees and hurling objects through the air like deadly missiles.

Every thunderstorm produces lightning, which kills more people some years than tornadoes or hurricanes. Although tornadoes are most common in the Central Plains and southeastern United States, they have been reported in all 50 states.
If you know what to do before, during, and after a tornado you can increase your chances of survival.
