Above is an image someone had taken of a tornado that rushed through Bremerton, WA two years ago, in December of 2018. No one was seriously injured, but it did cause some destruction to nearby homes. It may surprise you that there have been 122 tornadoes in Washington state since the 1950’s (not including this one).

So, how do tornado’s form? It actually takes a lot of effort or the wind to combine into a funnel that reaches the ground. Tornadoes can have a wind speed of anywhere from 30-70 miles per hour. Some can be so dangerous they have been known to lift up vehicles and up-end roofs on houses and buildings.
