When and how is tornado given a name?
Tornadoes are not formally named, hurricanes are. However, many tornadoes are named for where they hit or towns they go near. Though sometimes this leads to one tornado being called by multiple names. For example one infamous tornado that occurred on May 3, 1999 is often called the Oklahoma City tornado, the Moore, Oklahoma tornado, and the Bridgecreek-Moore tornado.
