I don't know why the "almost" answer made me laugh--like, "Well, I almost won a million dollars once," but I'm clearly not getting something, as apparently 7% of respondents have almost seen a tornado.

My guess is maybe they've seen a funnel which isn't quite a tornado but can become a tornado so I think that's how they almost saw a tornado XD lol. Otherwise I don't know.

Wow, I thought the numbers for "yes" would be much higher...but then, I'm not used to seeing something that other people don't unless it's wildlife :P. Luckily, the tornadoes we get here mostly aren't all that destructive, but one of the most terrifying sights I ever saw was of three tornadoes lined up and touched down right outside of town. The nearest was about a half-mile from us at that point, and my sisters and I were at the park with kids we were babysitting. I don't think I've ever run so fast carrying a kid that weighed half as much as I did in my life.

I live in Tennessee and I can remember just a few years ago- when I was about 14- spending the night at a friends house and, when her parents left for work in the morning and we were home alone, my mom called and told me her house was in a tornado watch zone right now. My grandparents came and picked us up to go back to my house and I watched out my pack door while two tornadoes destroyed half of her neighborhood. Luckily, her house was alright, but even the ones right next door or across the street from where we were took some damage, if not were completely demolished.
I still thank God to this day that we weren't there and had someone to rely on to get us both to safety. That HER house was okay is a miracle and astounding!

I'm from California, but we moved to Tx in 1997. That year a tornato came through the hwy and ripped out the roof from the cafeteria in my school. That same tornato hit down town fort worth and did quite a bit of damage. I've seen many since then.

I lived in Lawton, Oklahoma. Was a normal day to day thing to see tornadoes. Wed wake up with our roofs torn off and yard dab-re every where. Was a fun childhood to say the least.

Last year I was with my husband traveling to my parents house on a country road and I was watching this funny cloud for a while when it decided to drop on top of us. Thankfully it just threw up a bunch of dirt from the field beside us for about 30 seconds and then popped back up. We had a total blackout after a few seconds of heavy hail. Years before that I was going to bed and the sky was funny and I yelled at mom a tornado was coming..the sirens never sounded..she told me to go to bed and I stood and watched an F1 hit a few streets over and stood in the window as our house was sideswiped and jumped up and down about it. The next morning mom yelled for me and told me I was right as we watched the new and the chopper above the town. I always wanted to be a chaser...it's scary yet exciting!

I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I remember 4-27-2011. Growing up in the south it's part of it. But Feeling the air moving in circular motions around where you are taking cover and seeing the doors moving like someone is trying to get in. I remember looking out the window before taking cover. You couldn't see either side of it. But you could see it circularating. I don't wish it on anyone.

I am from Oklahoma and when I was little I remember seeing the clouds being sucked up in a circle. I thought for sure one was going to touch down!!

how does one almost see a tornado? Like, the tornado is coming around the corner, and you close your eyes and miss it?

When I lived in Oklahoma, I had seen some but then we almost saw another as well.. Meaning it came within 5 miles of our house but it was pitch black and couldnt see anything... pretty freaky to hear the sirens but not see anything.

I heard the tornado and things were blowing around and thrown against the house but it was at night and you couldn't see anything except a transformer that blew. So I voted almost couldn't truthfully say I saw it.

Just to be technical about it: a tornado has to actually touch the ground. Funnel clouds are "tornados" that don't actually touch down.

I've actually seen one form in the sky but never touch down, so that would be my guess as almost.

Almost meaning it was halfway formed or never touched down. I've had a couple go over my home during hurricanes that never fully touched down.

We lived in Illinois and were travelling on the roadway when a tornado was tearing a barn apart. It was a nightmare and we had no idea what to do. We kept driving and hoping it wouldn't come toward us. The hail stones were hitting our car and the wipers were pulled away from the windshield. We were lucky to get away in time.

I've definitely seen them, living in the south. Seen them almost form and never touch, and seen them touch down. Creepy, yet strangely pretty.

Houston, Texas 1989. We drove through one when I was six years-old. Didn't catch the actual funnel, but saw lots of downed power lines and plowed through the heaviest rainstorm I'd ever seen. Then once again about six years ago in NY. It was weak, but I definitely felt something passing over our house. Ended up knocking down a huge tree onto part of our fence, crushing it and damaging part of our neighbors' roof.

I was very young. We lived in southern Indiana. I was playing outside. My mom came and scooped me and the neighbor boy up and as we ran across the yard to the cellar door I saw the tornado in the distance. It veered away from our house, but I just remember how big it was, and how scared Mom was.

It wasn't that I wanted to. I looked out the window and there it was, in a field about 1/4 mile from my house. You really can just freeze. I couldn't tell if it was coming toward my place or going the other way. I should have gone to shelter but I just stood there staring at it. You can see them in movies and on television and even in the news, but it's nothing like looking out your own window and seeing that terrifying funnel cloud spinning and hearing the huge empty howling noise that comes with it. It did not come to my house or move away. It spent two hours in that field, going from a huge tornado that cleared that field of cows, to a bit of wind. I watched it all. They never found the cows.
