Minnesota tornado! May 1, 2012

Storm chaser Bill Doms documented a brief but photogenic tornado in Pope county Minnesota on May 1, 2012. The parent mesocyclone went on to produce several other dust whirls from near Sedan, MN to north of Spring Hill, MN.

    Yeah – I’d have to say that’s an EF -1 tornado there. Still nice video though.

    Right, if it does not touch the ground, it is classified as a funnel, but you would need to see the ground below to determine if there was any rotation, if there is dirt rotating on the ground underneath the funnel, it is a tornado.

    I have only ever seen one tornado, but it stopped before it touched down, so then it’s maybe not even called a tornado? : )

  • scottmcf2011 says:

    If you notice in the description of this video it states that this storm went on and produce more dust swirls. Not tornados.

  • scottmcf2011 says:

    Ok, for th ose that would like to take the time to comment others and belittle them by being childish the so do it. I have training in storm spotting and also a chaser but you can’t call that a tornado till you either have a debris cloud on the ground or you can physically see the vortex touching the ground. Until then it is only a funnel. The second have of the video don’t even look like it came from the same storm. so you guys have your fun and be childish by saying I’m an idiot and what not.

  • SoundtrackToMyyLife says:

    Basically, what you’re proving is that you’re an idiot and you don’t realize the entire condensation funnel is sometimes not visible but still may be touching the ground. A gustnado isn’t produced by a rotating wall cloud and where the hell would a dust devil form in Minnesota?
