    Is it to late to become a tornado scientist at the age of 36? 😔

  • Evan Nelson on May 6, 2020

    If tornadoes form from the ground up then what’s the difference between a tornado and land spout/dust devil now?

    I lived through May 3rd 1999 Moore, OK F5 tornado. I was 10 years old and I’ll never forget walking out of Westmoore High School after it passed and seeing all the destruction around. There was nothing left. It was like a bomb went off. And we were hit again May 20 2013 with the same F5. So much carnage. It was horrible.

    Hello random person scrolling through the comments

    I hope you're having a great day

  • Khan MD Abdullah on May 6, 2020

    It must have been the image before the tornado

  • MARIA PAZ OCHOA ESCOBAR on May 6, 2020


  • Catsby Collins on May 6, 2020

    Those are some very happy pups! The researchers seem contented as well. Thanks for the nice video.

  • Hazel Pony on May 6, 2020

    Awesome video!

  • poplowe TV on May 6, 2020

    This is really scary!

  • TheRAM on May 6, 2020

    Oh my sweet Jesus😱😱i am having a panic attack!

  • meetu jain on May 6, 2020

    Thanks your study would also help understand storms n winds in other planets…💗💗💗

  • TODAY'S TRUTH on May 6, 2020

    Scary Tornadoes😅

    Stay safe😊

  • Fiona Clacken on May 6, 2020

    I think tornadoes are absolutely beautiful

  • realfoggy on May 6, 2020

    It seems you need the up draft and the upper level shear winds to create a tornado. Maybe you can't have super cells without updrafts and warm moist air? The conclusion isn't very well explained and it makes it sound like this is more of a theory than a fact.

  • Ballistic Fish on May 6, 2020

    tornadoes, more like potatoes

  • Richie on May 6, 2020

    Extraordinary natural phenomenon!

  • weng weng on May 6, 2020

    blessed enough that my country didn't experience this much… stay safe quarantiners

  • NoalFarstrider on May 6, 2020

    This seems like a starship troopers bit…

  • Taslim Chaudhry on May 6, 2020

    Nice Video

  • Joninfiction on May 6, 2020

    Shouldn’t the tornado start from all sides? It is made of oxygen. Which is everywhere.

  • Riri Ranzl on May 6, 2020

    Wow, scary tornadoes….

  • Simon-David Căpuşneanu on May 6, 2020

    I think that there was a movie based on the story of the team that died in that tornado, named "Into the storm"

  • Deborah Farr on May 6, 2020

    I've seen many though my life. They are only beautiful from a safe perspective. When that pressure comes down over your head and shoulders and you know then without a doubt that storm is right above you it brings you to your knees. You know no matter who your are or what you have achieved in life you have absolutely no control over what is about to happen. It's a fear you will remember forever.

    more weather stuff!

  • Piri Hern on May 6, 2020

    Main reason I would not move to those states in tornado alleys

  • arrowghost on May 6, 2020

    Discovery's Storm Chasers, anyone?

  • National Geographic on May 6, 2020

    Anton Seimon chases extreme weather in the "Tornado Alley" of the Midwest US. What were you most amazed by in this video?

  • David Emanuel Rosini on May 6, 2020

    amazing 😀

  • David Emanuel Rosini on May 6, 2020


  • Al Kulla on May 6, 2020

    amazing stuff

  • DeviousTomasz on May 6, 2020

    How were they able to determine that the tornado formed from the ground up at 4:17? Is the visible formation (the dirt being pulled/pushed towards the clouds) different than formation of the actual forces involved? I would have assumed that the tornado already existed before it was visible, it just took the movement of the dirt upwards to be noticeable.

  • How to on May 7, 2020

    🐻 nguksss 💣💥🔥 ട്ടത് ലിംഗം 🐻🌍🌱

  • Sean L on May 7, 2020

    He even sounds like like a scientist.

  • Harmon Everett on May 7, 2020

    His analysis is flawed, and his conclusions are wrong. At 4:17, the tornado doesn't START from the ground, the dirt just starts getting kicked up from the ground, due to forces FROM THE CLOUD. None of these analyses of tornadoes make any sense. They don't take into consideration the energy released by the condensation of water vapor into rain, the partial vacuum and refrigeration that occurs when the volume of water vapor disappears, and that the rotation is the result of the air getting sucked up into the storm cloud, not the cause of it. Science involves tracking where the forces and masses come from and where they go to, and what causes what. These explanations might as well be:" ooogah boogah…magic.." What motive forces are there that create the effects we see?

    tornado: threatens humanity
    People: cheering bravoo

  • Archana Kadam on May 8, 2020

    Who loves studying weather

  • Gouni-Mae Montgomery on May 8, 2020

    I really like his remark after giving the reasons (better understanding of storms ultimately benefits the public; simply love it; and the enormous reward) why he does this, “I’ll never pretend that I’ll need another reason, other than that, to do this.”

  • Skippi Names on May 10, 2020

    Not very conducive to homage is not naming the honored.

  • Great video with usable explanations! 👍👍👍😀

  • The Weather Geek on May 12, 2020

    I have started my you tube channel now thanks national Geographic

  • Janhavi 🌴 on June 5, 2020


  • it reaches up from the ground because it's the same phenomena as lightning, its electrical discharge, an attempt to neutralize the charge differential, something which is not possible but is kind of everlasting, that is also why sprites and elves form when there's a ground to cloud lightning of considerable potential, it just wants to complete the circuit as far as possible an even goes high enough into the region normally reserved for the aurora's and change color as the gasses change and thus the color these plasma pinches show changes. it's part of the global electrical circuit, and linked to larger circuits in the solar system, or at least the charge differential for those unwilling to acknowledge currents connecting sun, planets and beyond.

  • Gianina Beatriz F. Zayco on September 12, 2021

    Wow a tornado
