Nearly half way through the movie a tornado lifts a train off of its tracks, the tornado lifts the freight cars high into the air while the locomotive is only airborne for a few seconds before being dropped. It has been confirmed that tornadoes can lift trains off their tracks and in some cases throw the freight cars a good distance from the tracks like the 1968 Tracy tornado and 2011 Tuscaloosa-Birmingham tornado.

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Although it's mentioned by any character, a tornado is measured by its destructive force with the Fujita's Scale. It was named after Tetsuya Fujita, who in 1971 in collaboration with Allan Pearson created a scale to differentiate a twister according the wind speed:

-F0: 60-117 km/h or 45- 72 mph (light damage).

-F1: 117-181 km/h or 73-112 mph (moderate damage).

-F2: 181-250 km/h or 113-157 mph (significant damage).

-F3: 250-320 km/h or 158-206 mph (severe damage).

-F4: 320-420 km/h or 207-260 mph (devastating damage).

-F5: 420-510 km/h or 261-308 mph (incredible damage).

-F6: 510-610 km/h or 309-379 mph (altough initially Fujita scale have five marks, in 1999 a tornado located in Bridge Creek-Moore, Oklahoma, devastated with a force more powerful never seen before. It was the only one F6 registered in history).
