CDS Business Mapping, a provider of hazard mapping, today announced its list of the top ten tornado prone metro-areas, through the company's RiskMeter Online service, which matches natural hazards to addresses or geographic coordinates on an ad hoc or automated batch basis.
Gustnadoes are defined as ground-based wind vortexes that sometimes form along the front of thunderstorms, MyFoxChicago.com reported Tuesday. While similar to twisters, gustnadoes are much weaker, with winds between 60 to 90 mph.
Senior meteorologist Henry Margusity of AccuWeather.com told Reuters that a gustnado could have pushed already strong winds to gusts of up to 60 mph or more.
"If you analyze the video, you can see that gustnado kind of coming across and moving through, and everything's twirling around as it goes through," Margusity said.
The footage also shows flags changing directions as the wind passed through, another move typical of gustnadoes.

President Obama said GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry has "to be a little more careful" with his rhetoric and says he'll cut the Texas governor some slack for suggesting the Federal Reserve is almost "treasonous."
In an interview with CNN airing tonight, Obama was asked if he thought Perry's comments during an Iowa event on Monday night were disrespectful.
"I think that everybody who runs for president, it probably takes them a little bit of time before they start realizing that this isn't like running for governor or running for senator or running for Congress, and you've got to be a little more careful about what you say," Obama said.
"But I'll cut him some slack. He's only been at it for a few days now."

'Huge' results raise hope for cancer breakthrough
In early results from a clinical trial, genetically engineered T cells eradicate leukemia cells and thrive. Two of three patients studied have been cancer-free for more than a year.

In a potential breakthrough in cancer research, scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have genetically engineered patients' T cells — a type of white blood cell — to attack cancer cells in advanced cases of a common type of leukemia.
Two of the three patients who received doses of the designer T cells in a clinical trial have remained cancer-free for more than a year, the researchers said.
