Over the last couple decades, I’ve found myself trying to outrun some fast tornadoes.  But what exactly is considered a fast tornado? And how fast can tornadoes move?  The majority of tornadoes I encounter track roughly 25-30 mph.  For me, anything slower than that, I consider slow and anything faster than 39 mph, I consider a fast tornado.  But tornadoes can move much faster than that.  Ride along with this scientific mission to uncover how the fastest tornado yet documented was discovered and how we calculated its ground speed.
