Some Fargo elementary students got the chance to see a tornado up close. NDSU Assistant Professor of Climatology Adnan Akyuz spoke to first graders at Kennedy Elementary School this morning. He created a tornado vortex using a glass chamber, boiling water, dry ice and a bathroom fan. Akyuz talked about tornado formation and told kids they should head to a safe location like a bathroom and wear helmets.

Jack Bullinger – Kennedy Elementary School Student: “Why are you wearing your helmet? Cause it would hit your head and it would hurt.”

Akyuz says helmets can increase your chances of survival if a tornado strikes your home.
