Tornado, Texas, USA. Time-lapse footage of a tornado that occurred in May 2015, in Texas, USA. The parent tornadic supercell stayed almost stationary as it produced a 20-minute-long EF2 tornado that stayed over open countryside for its entire life cycle. A tornado is a rapidly rotating funnel of air that can form below certain types of storm clouds. High wind speeds within the rotating funnel can cause immense destruction. This footage was filmed on 5 May 2015, north of Big Springs, Texas, USA.
