with that size? jangan harap lah…

its not tornado, just a twister. tornado smaller cousin.

:lol: :lol: maybe alot of them nerd…

this was last year…


could it be because of the effect of the global warming?

long time ago no global warming also happen borr

it is the tornado season then, same thing happened in the south east of usa


i think soon we have our own tornado chasers

This is so called mini size Tornado will only happen in the sea and never ever coming into the land. There is an geographical explanation abt this :wink: I ever read the report few years back. Its happen because of the cold wind friction. So, nothing to worry abt. The destructive and impact is very light.

not really southeast … its the tornado alley area is located in the center of USA

here is a diagram:

we have heat fronts in miri and we have cold fronts from the low pressure zones but raletively weak ones so not gonna get a F1 or even a F 2 anytime soon

for those who dosnt know what F1 and F2 means here is a link :

it’s a water spout… happened in kk a few years back… only dangerous to those at sea, will usually disappear as it approaches shallow areas…

That is called a waterspout… often occured in tropical areas as Malaysia. I’ve seen this for many times since my days in offshore.
