everything in my area seems a little off. Yes we are under tornado watch.
No the wind does not stop when a tornado is near. But you'll find that all animals will hide by instinct. There will be no birds in the trees, no cats on the street. If you have a dog it will probably hide under your bed and if you have a cat it will be hiding in a tight spot. If you have a caged animal it will try and bury itself in it's hay/paper etc etc. The eye of the tornado, directly down the centre at the bottom is completely still, though.
strange things happen when tornados happen, but the wind does not stop... the eye of a hurricane has a strange calm but that is not the case with a twister. The closest i have ever been to a tornado was about 2 miles and the sky was green. I couldnt hear the train that some people report but I assume that is when its on top of you.
It was an ignorant question to ask
No it sucks in the wind
tornado IS wind. O.o
