Where do tornadoes form?

Tornadoes form in many parts of the world, but most tornadoes form in the central Great Plains of the United States. This central Great Plains has a high number of tornadoes every spring and summer. This area is also called "tornado alley". There are several states which make up this "tornado alley".

How do tornadoes form?

Tornadoes form when warm, moist air rises and the cold, dry air is forced down which creates an updraft. This updraft creates a rotaion of air within the thunderstorm cloud. When the right conditions are present, a tornado may form within the thunderstorm cloud.
