I'm interested in knowing if the funnel cloud itself is responsible for generating an electrical charge. I'm familiar (lightly) with electricity/lightning in a thunderstorm, and I've searched the web (a number of sites) but I just can't find anything to answer this question (I did discover that a tornado generates a great deal of energy, but the manifestation of this energy was not described. . .) Thank you in advance, Derek
Re: Does a tornado (not TStorm) create electricity/lightning? If so, why?
