Cool photo of the two tornadoes before they merged.

Some interesting & little known facts about this tornado:

The event actually consisted of two separate tornadoes, which merged to become a single funnel. Before the twisters joined, one tornado rotated counter-clockwise (cyclonic), the other spun clockwise (anticyclonic).

This tornado is often thought to be the first one ever captured on film. That's true in that it was the first one recorded in the US. But the very first one in the world to be filmed was in 1933 in Cuba.

This tornado was a "co-star" in the first tornado preparedness film, "Tornado!", which was made in 1956. Check out my videos to see that film in its entirety.
