The interns at The Weather Channel got so excited about Tornado Week they wanted to recreate a Twitter-powered Tornado in their office.

Here’s how it works. Every public mention of #TornadoWeek on Twitter raises the scale and boosts the winds. You can even Tweet at the interns using the @TornadoWeek handle.

Hit 1,000,000 mentions and they will turn up the wind for a full blown EF-5 tornado inside the Weather Channel offices!
