    Un marinero está explicando una tormenta que sufrieron en alta mar y dice:

    And a tornado green on top and red on the bottom!

    No tengo ni idea de a qué se refiere, ni por qué nombra los colores rojo y verde. ¿"Top" y "bottom" se referirán a proa y popa?
    ¿Se refiere a que el tornado era rojo en la base y verde en el cielo?

    Cualquier sugerencia es bienvenida. Muchas gracias.

    You're right, it's a strange quote! Yes, what the text actually says is that the tornado was green at the top and red at the bottom – why a tornado would be these colours, I don't know. It certainly makes it sound strange and scary – perhaps the light conditions really made it look those colours! I have no other explanation!
