Why Do Tornadoes Spin?


Tornados spin due to rotating air that is normally found inside a storm. In a storm, air is carried upwards by a strong convection current and its motion is then turned sideways causing it to rotate. At times, this rotating air is amplified and the storm drops from the cloud to the ground forming a tornado.
