    see something into view

    Cleanup of tornado-swept Iowa town to take months - Yahoo! News
    Terry Siebersma, who runs a downtown liquor store with his wife, was manning his shop when he heard the tornado sirens and saw the sky turn green. In the distance, he saw the twister swirl into view.

    What does "see something into view" mean?

    ... he saw the twister swirl into view.

    sunsunmoon.
    "swirl" means to move in a twisting, spiraling way.
    "twister" is another word for whirlwind.
    to "see something come into view" means to notice it move into a position where you can see it properly, into your line of sight.

    So, he saw the whirlwind twisting into his line of sight.
