Tornado in Bangalore

Tornado in Bangalore, India

Yesterday evening there was an unusual seen in the Bangalore Sky. A 'real' Tornado (though it was a cloud formation). The cloud formed exactly like a Twister. The below shots are taken from MS Ramaiah Hospital near BEL Road.

This 'Tornado' was clearly visible from MG road too.

About Tornado:
A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air which is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud.

Although tornadoes have been observed on every continent except Antarctica, most occur in the United States. They also commonly occur in southern Canada, south-central and eastern Asia, east-central South America, Southern Africa, northwestern and southeast Europe, western and southeastern Australia, and New Zealand.

Is it was a real Tornado came in Bangalore?
Anybody from Bangalore noticed it ?

  3. looks loke a tornado...
    but im sure its not..
    neway ,nice pic..
    its a cloud formation....
    definitely not a tornado...

  4. Good catch.

    But I dont think it is a tornado, it is just a cloud formation. It does not seem to have touched down at any place(any reports?) and it doesnt originate from a Wall Cloud.

    You could probably classify it as a 'shear funnel' though.

  5. hi... i think that was not a tornado//
    if it was.. then there should the formation of black cloud with wall cloud//
