A. Neither would be likely, according to experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It is a myth that skyscrapers somehow puncture the whirlwinds that build up into tornadoes, the experts say. But tornadoes have indeed hit skyscrapers, notably the 35-story Bank One Tower in Fort Worth in 2000.

One may also ask, do tornadoes hit wooded areas? Tornadoes can touch down in forests. Yes, and there's usually not much of a forest left over afterwards

Secondly, do tornadoes hit in the mountains?

Tornadoes occur most often in the Midwest plains, which have the best conditions for twisters. Tornadoes can and do hit mountains, and there have been several reports of higher-elevation tornadoes. A biggie was the Teton-Yellowstone tornado that touched down in July 1987.

Do tornadoes prefer flat land?

Tornadoes Only Move Over Flat Land Just because tornadoes are often observed traveling over miles of flat, open terrain, such as the Great Plains, doesn't mean they can't travel across rugged land or climb to higher elevations (although doing so can weaken them significantly).
