Throughout the entire movie, barns, houses, cars, 18-wheelers, etc. are demolished and lifted into the air like they were made of paper. And yet Jo and Bill pass through one tornado after another with nothing more than their hair getting messed up (a little.) You'd think just the debris flying into their faces at 100 miles an hour would be enough to give them a few injuries. See more...

The entry you are correcting is:
|Original entry||In multiple scenes in the movie, you see objects flying through the air like the cow, yet the tornado itself is a good distance away (at least a half mile). This simply isn't possible, in fact, at that distance from a tornado you normally will either have calm air or strong DOWNDRAFTS, certainly not objects floating around. Only in the tornado itself will objects be flying in the air, and they basically will be lifted up, then dropped, as the tornado passes over. [It seems you're mistaking the funnel (or condensation) cloud for the tornado itself when really it's a *part* of the tornado. The areas around the condensation cloud (particularly in the inward flow boundary where wind goes from horizontal to vertical) are wracked with violent winds. In images of tornadoes that touch down, the inward flow boundary is often seen as a fountain of dust and debris shooting up in the air near where the funnel touches down. This is where the characters are situated during these scenes. They are not a half-mile away from the tornado... they are *in* the tornado, just not in the core of it.]|
