Both landspouts and waterspouts are classified as tornadoes since they are defined by an intensely rotating column of air in contact with both the surface and a cumuliform cloud.

I've always thought of a land or water spout as a tornado, not visibly connected to the storm cloud which produced it.
Awesome picture though. I've never heard of tornadoes in France. Pretty crazy stuff....S+F

Yes, they are very rare and usually EF-0, EF-1 and very rarely EF-2.

Boy, technology at it's finest. An alien mother ship harvesting grains. I suppose they like bread once in a while. They could cause a tornado to hit a bakery and wouldn't need to bake their bread.

if it moved cars and uprooted trees it seems like a tornado to me.

so i looked up landspout and they are also called "dust tube tornadoes" and are not associated with a mesocyclone.... but have cause F3 damage before.... and are technically tornadoes.

very interesting!

"Landspout"?
What's wrong with "dust devil" or "whirlwind"? Not all that rare though it takes a big one to do much damage.

"Landspout?"
