That was pretty good footage... I couldn't play the sound on the video, so I don't know if they gave details or not... Looked like a strong F1 or a weak F2 - depending on what the debris was made of... Hope no one was hurt...

That's 80 years apart. For such a large country that is a very rare occurrence. There are parts of the US where tornadoes are a monthly occurrence during the right season. We get at least one tornado a year in my area. A freak weather incident indeed.

I know, but the US is notorious for tornadoes. If you look at the link I provided they are very rare in that entire part of the world.

I've lived all my live in tornado country, so always just assumed they were a semi-common experience everywhere. Obviously not the case.
