Random WOW: ' Dirtiest City '

Largest Object Lifted by a Tornado

The popular film, 'The Wizard of Oz' features a scene in which an entire house is lifted into the air by a tornado. It soon lands in another world, inhabited by wierdos.

In the real world, it is doubtful whether or not the tornado would have lifted the house successfully. More likely, it would have simply torn it apart.

In another tornado-themed film, 'Twister', a cow is seen being spun around inside a tornado. This is based on a real event when a cow was seen being spun around inside a tornado.

By deduction, the largest object lifted by a tornado is therefore somewhere between the size of a cow and the size of a house. And thus, the answer is clear! It's an industrial sized air-conditioning unit!

WOW!
