The Tornado Project Online!
Welcome to the Tornado Project Online! We are a small company that gathers, compiles, and makes tornado information available to tornado and severe weather enthusiasts, the meteorological community and emergency management officials in the form of tornado books, posters, and videos. There are many sites with tornado data, so we are giving the subject a little different twist, with tornado myths, tornado oddities, personal tornado experiences, tornado chasing, tornado safety, and tornadoes in the past as well as more recent tornadoes. We will always adding new pages and have some unique ideas planned, so come back often and check us out. You'll be glad you blew in!
