I remember seeing something on TV about tornados and I
had see the most amazing tornado, it had a big wedge tornado and two rope
tornados rotating around the wedge tornado. I cannot remember the name of
this kind of tornado, but I think its called a carousel tornado. Would
you please help me identify and understand this kind of tornado?
Tornados come in many shapes and forms. And their formation is not
entirely understood. I think you will find a fascinating trail of
information by searching the term: "tornado types". I did!! Many sites
also had very graphic pictures. I did not find the term "carousel tornado"
but it may be there on one of the sites.
