Tornado Family

We just learned about the type of whirlwind called a steam devil.

Remember a while back we learned about a multiple vortex tornado which is one tornado but looks like two close side by side.

Sometimes a supercell storm will have two separate tornadoes in the same storm.
If this happens it is called a tornado family.
