Hey the most appropriate word is tornadoes. For example, tomato ends with “o” and the plural form of tomato is “tomatoes “ , therefore tornadoes is the correct plural form.

The plural is “tornadoes” Words ending with an “o” become -oes in plural form Ex. Tomato->tomatoes Potato->potatoes
( Tornadoes ) since the word ends with consonant O . like : tomato - tomatoes / hero - heroes / potato - potatoes .

The correct plural form is tornadoes. Just like the colleagues stated before me the words "tomato", "potato", "hero" and "mosquito" have the -es ending in plural. I hope this helps!

Tornado is tornadoes in plural. Nouns ending in -o use -es to form the plural. However, pay attention to some nouns which originate from Greek like photo, which forms the plural with -s . Eg. photo - photos
You should use tornadoes

Definitely you have to say "Tornadoes", As we add -es- to a word that's ended by -o- To make it plural 🤗
The correct term would be "Tornadoes"
Tornadoes because when word end with o we should add es in plural
