Massive Tornado Outbreak
Kissimmee, Florida has Several Tornadoes Break Out.
How Do They Form?
Tornadoes form in nature when warm, moist air comes into contact with cool, dry air. When the warm, moist air slides under the cool, dry air, the commotion causes tornadoes to form in a vortex in between them. The vortex continues to form larger, creating a funnel cloud that then reaches the ground. In Kissimmee the two air masses caused so much commotion that many tornadoes formed, causing a tornado outbreak.
How Have Tornadoes Affected Us In The Past?

How It Affects Us Now.
Tornadoes affects people and animals by destroying homes, habitats, water and food supply, and lives. Tornadoes do this because the vortex that creates the tornado is essentially a very strong gust of wind blowing around, and when the wind comes near objects, such as homes and habitats, it sucks it up and throws it around.
