How did they make the tornado sounds in Twister? So how did they come up with the sound? “To make new and different wind sounds, they constructed a box filled with chicken wire, stuck a microphone inside, and placed it on top of a car,” author Keay Davidson revealed in his book, Twister: The Science of Tornadoes and the Making of a Natural Disaster Movie.
Is twister based on real science? While Twister isn’t an entirely accurate depiction of storm chasing and its characters are fictional, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been happy to point out that the movie was based on real, solid work of the good people at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory.
What’s the heaviest thing a tornado can lift? What is the heaviest thing a tornado has ever picked up? The Pampa, Texas tornado moved machinery that weighted more that 30,000 pounds. Whether it was slid or picked up, we don’t know. A tornado would certainly have no trouble tossing a 2000 -3000 pound van into the air.
Can a tornado lift a cow? Tornados can — and do — pick up heavy animals like cows and large objects like semi trucks.
