The real town of Wakita, Oklahoma had part of its old downtown area demolished by the film crew for the scenes after the twister passes. The studio then paid for the downtown to be rebuilt. The town also kept the new fire truck used in the film. See more »
While Bill and Jo are arguing in her truck en route to the reported location of a twister, Belzter and Haynes are seen laughing while listening in on them. This would not have been possible unless the mic was keyed the entire time, which would also make Beltzer's call to them that he had spotted the twister impossible to hear. See more »
Dr. Jonas Miller:
Today, we're gonna make history, so stick around. 'Cause the days of sniffing the dirt are over.
Better than what *you* sniff.
We'll see who gets there first... "pal".
Dr. Jonas Miller:
Oh, by the way. I really enjoy your weather reports.
[Jonas' crew laugh]
[runs at Jonas]
You slime! I'm not through with you yet!

WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYONE'S PROBLEM WITH THIS FILM
Ever since this films release in 1996, its very title has become synonymous with Bad films. Its been labelled stupid, loud, dumb and every other thing you can think of. Whilst I admit that the script aint hot and there's no real story in the film, the action is great, the special effects are brilliant, the film moves fast and provides a slambang rocking good ride. Im sorry that more films like this are not made. I love this film. When i saw it at the theatre, i was blown away (no pun intended). Bill paxton does a good job in the lead (yeah people have said that he is dull and that they should have found someone with more charisma. PUHLLLEASSSEEE). I'll watch this film a thousand times between now and the day I die. And for all the geniuses out there who call this film Crap. I hope you all get swept up in a windstorm, I really do. GREAT JOB JAN DEBONT
