On the occurrence of tornadoes and their distribution in India
Eight cases of tornadoes and one case of a waterspout were examined since the time upper air soundings have become available. Meteorological conditions associated with their occurrence have been studied. It was found that the mesoscale lows formed along lines of discontinuity in the lower tropospheric levels are the preferred areas for their occurrence.
44 cases of tornado occurrence in record with India Met. Dep. and 113 cases of strong winds collected from press reports quoted in Weekly Weather Reports from 1951 onward were used to prepare the maps for distribution of tornadoes and expected maximum winds on Fujita scale.
