Caption   This series of photos captures the full life cycle of a tornado as it drops from the clouds, roars across a farm north of Roscoe, South Dakota, and then lifts and dissipates. Like most twisters, this one was ephemeral, lasting just under three minutes. The parent storm, however, was much longer lived, and produced numerous tornados along its path.
