Tornadoes in Candy Crush
If you have played beyond Level 410, you would be introduced to tornadoes.
The tornadoes bring Candy Crush to new level of difficulty.
You do not have any control over the tornadoes and you have no idea which tiles it will hit next as it is totally random. Therefore, it is almost impossible to line up for any special candy moves as it could just be destroyed in the next move. To add insult to injury, the tornadoes not only destroy tiles by random, it also leaves the destroyed tile in destruction for one more move. Therefore, you are unable to use that particular damaged tile for one more move.
You cannot do anything to prevent the tornadoes from happening and it does not go away unlike real life tornadoes.
The only way to deal with the tornadoes in Candy Crush is to understand how it works and work around it to plan your next move. And here is the secret :-
After the tornado is done with its destruction, the tile remains unusable for one more move. Immediately thereafter, the next move, the damaged tile will heal by itself. The important thing to note is here, the tile that was above the damaged tile will cascade down to the healed tile.
So if you are planning your next move, take note of the tiles that are going to be healed the next move and you get an idea of how to plan for your next move. After all, the tornado does not come back to damage a tile that has just healed.
How to disable the tornadoes for 5 moves
Our reader, Mike, has shared an invaluable tip to deal with tornadoes. That is, with a mega explosion using two wrapped candies, the tornadoes in the line of explosion will be disabled for about 5 moves. While the tornadoes will reappear after 5 moves, many things can be done during their absence!
Reader Cory also shared that with the donut, the striped candies and the stripped/wrapped candies combo, you can also get rid of tornadoes. As long as the tornado is in the path of the combo it will be "blown" away.

Level 417 - Candy Crush Saga
In particular for Level 417 of Candy Crush Saga, you also need to note that the tornadoes have the tendency to destroy the tile with the pink candy donut once the jelly is removed. So if you are not ready to use your donut yet, do not strip away the jelly. But once you have stripped away the jelly, be prepared to use the donut in the next move, if not the tornadoes will likely do it for you within the next 1-2 moves.
