How to predict tornadoes

Tornadoes are predicted using a variety of different devices. Doppler radar, infrasound detectors, lightning imaging sensors, and multiple-antenna profile radar (MAPR) are all used to help detect the formation of tornadoes, but there are still errors with these things and the meteorologists have to check whether there is actually a tornado.
