      Can you have lighting inside of a tornado?

      Ron Holle, research meteorologist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory has studied storm for decades and has noted that “if lightning ever occurs inside a tornado, it is extremely rare. There is no conclusive evidence that it has done so.”

      in 2013, there was a photo taken of a lightning bolt shooting out of its side.
