A number of meteorological measurements during the early stage of a relatively small tornado permitted the calculation of surface-pressure and wind-speed distributions employing the conservation of momentum and the cyclostrophic wind equation. Of particular interest is the cycloid trajectory of a small cubical building which allowed an estimation of the radial wind component within the tornado.
