What the Heck is a Baby Tornado?

A baby tornado or mini tornado is also called a dust devil in some states. They're not nearly as large or as strong as regular tornados. According to, these types of tornados can be spotted in almost all parts of the world. They can have a diameter that ranged anywhere from 10ft to 300ft. It only takes light winds for these funnels to form and it typically happens over hot ground like dirt or asphalt. It makes perfect sense they would be common at a park.
