16 Amazing Tornado Pictures

The southern and mid-western United States are heading into tornado season now. Although living in ‘tornado alley’ is a frightening idea for some people, it’s the most exhilarating time of the year for storm chasers, who get spectacular images while tracking tornadoes. If you fortunately/unfortunately don’t live in tornado alley, you can still find impressive tornadoes (albeit smaller) over the ocean as ‘waterspouts’ or in the desert as ‘dust devils’.

I would never be able to get close enough to photograph a tornado – I would be hiding somewhere safe. Not to mention being afraid of having a piece of flying debris breaking my glass.

Oak Cliff really amazing. What a pic. Look really dark and deep

Tornadoes are pretty cool, but when you start putting photo shopped images on the site it kind of discredits the rest of the images here.
