l tornado che colpì la laguna di Venezia I ' l l Settembre 1970 Qualche considerazione intorno alla teoria elettrica dei tornado



After a short description of the disastrous effects of the
tornado which struck the Venice lagoon on September 11, 1970, the principal
theories which in the centuries tried to account for the origin of such
terrible vortexes, are reviewed. In particular, some remarks are given about
the electrical theory of the tornadoes. It seems to the author that some features
would be explained in a simple way by considering the tornado as a
convectivo cell with electric currents of high intensity. Finally, after recalling
the meteorological conditions preceding the tornado of September 11,
its chief features are described.
