This interactive applet from the University of Wisconsin-Madison demonstrates the effect of changing tornado variables. By adjusting funnel width and core pressure difference, the user can produce tornadoes of different intensities and see their effects. Find out what happens to a house and a cow when hit by the most intense tornado.
