View down along the path of the F-2 (T-4) Bow Street Tornado. The oak shows an absolute classic example of tornado-
damage - cyclonic debris throw: although the tornado travelled towards the fallen trees in the distance R, the branches of the
oak have been snapped-off and thrown down leftwards i.e. at right angles to the track. This is because almost all tornadoes
spin in an anticlockwise (cyclonic) fashion, so that despite general winds being from the south west, the tornado winds would have hit with extreme violence from the south east as its leading edge came through.
