    Because of tornado light things moves up into the sky, as it is activated on the surface of the water and pulls the lighted creatures upwards. These creatures fly along with the tornado and then remain in the sky until the speed of wind decreases. When the speed of the wind gradually decreases, then all the things baffled and thus the creatures fall with rain water.
