Gustnado

Smaller, and therefore weaker and less damaging, than a regular tornado—think tornado Mini-Me—a gustnado comes up along the gust front of a thunderstorm and is typically short-lived. They form from low-level wind and can whirl up dust or debris. If you find yourself inside one, cover your eyes.
