Our software is written to follow ASCE 7, and ASCE 7 does not address Tornado design. You can simulate very high wind loads with MecaWind, and it will just use the normal straight line wind pressures expected from a wind at that speed; however, there are no other special considerations given in ASCE 7 or our software MecaWind for tornado design.
