Tornado & Lightning

Tornado and Lightning

Lightning can serve as a natural sensing tool that allows scientists to understand what else could be happening in a storm

    1. Do you know where this tornado actually occurred? I've seen this picture so many times yet haven't been able to find out.

  2. I don't know how I will go outside to capture this picture but nice picture though.

  3. As recorded by the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Melbourne, Florida, the tornado funnel/lightning bolt photograph was taken near Lake Okeechobee, Florida, on 15 June 1991. It has been available for purchase (in poster form) through the Tornado Project's on-line store since at least mid-2001.

  4. Yeah, very cool glimpse of power. Nice

  5. Thanks for share. It would be great if a link is added for its HD image
