Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there became a strong concern in this country
about our ability to cope with natural disasters. Due to the expensive cost of
acquiring detailed data about the hazard before, during and after the event, many
agencies are putting systems forth to allow citizens affected by the events to
contribute details about their surroundings. This may be in the form of data sent
over a mobile phone, or Internet connection to a PC. Please weigh in your thoughts
about using this system as a method of coping with natural disasters by taking this

My thought is that the heat of the lightning would cause the tornado to swell a bit and then disipate.
As I understand it, the rearanging of positive and negative charges takes time. This could occur over a period of time with the posibility of a tornado passing under it.

Would the tornado make the volcano erupt? Has this ever happened before?

Does it really work, or would the tornado suck me out from under it?
