Now that we’re experiencing daily rainstorms and cooler weather, it’s clear that the rainy season has arrived in the Philippines. But 2020’s weather is crazier than usual (along with everything else this year).
In the late afternoon of May 30, netizens in Alabang documented THREE tornadoes above Laguna de Bay. There was reportedly only one tornado at first, then two others appeared.
Take a look:

How do tornadoes form?
Tornadoes usually form during thunderstorms, but some waterspouts (which are tornadoes over water) can develop even without a thunderstorm. When warm, humid air collides with cool air in the upper atmosphere, it creates horizontal wind shears, which are rolling columns of spinning wind. The warmer air creates an updraft, moving the wind shears into a vertical position.
