Puzzling Tornado Photo.

Michael Auker

I was trying to figure out why the below photo has such a strange scouring pattern, then I came across this statement by Andy Wehrle and it all made sense.
Sometimes, storm motion can actually enhance windspeed. Forward speed has a lot to do with damaging straight-line wind potential, and can increase tornado windspeed as well. To the right side of the path (in a cyclonic tornado) where the winds are blowing toward the direction of movement, a high forward speed can increase the windspeed on that side.
Is this photo actually an example of that phenomenon?
I thought the action, of more intense winds on the right side of storms, has to do with the earths rotation/gravity affecting the spin....
