Tornado. “Dead” silence.

In the centre of a tornado dominates “dead” silence.
Please explain the reason for this silence.

Solution.

The outside sounds may not penetrate the pillar of a tornado, due to the fact that sound waves are strongly refracted in the fast air flow created by the tornado. In addition, that overwhelming feeling of absolute silence inside the tornado is also enhanced by the fact that the sharp decrease in the air/barometric pressure also decrease a person’s ability to hear.
