    No, although theoretically they could.  Tornadoes are misunderstood because of movies like the Wizard of Oz where a tornado shows a house being lifted up into the clouds like a tornado works like a vacuum.  That’s not the case.  A tornado works more like a blender chucking light things into the air creating debris balls.  It’s these debris balls that are dangerous that can be serious.  It isn’t being sucked into a tornado that you need to worry about, it’s a flying brick from a mile away that you need to worry about and the stronger the tornado the more force that brick will have.
