Power of a tornado

Recommended Posts

  • tornadogregIf you ever want to witness the true power of a tornado this may be one of the best images I can show you.

    Today, we are revisiting Delmont, SD that was devastated by a tornado back on May 10th. This crowbar was 'shot' into a tree by the tornado. The town will be using it as part of a memorial to the event which saw 40 homes and businesses completely destroyed.

    Image how fast that crowbar was flying....

This is a piece of metal embedded in a tree after a tornado, about 150 metres from the house I lived in. There were only 2 caravans in its direct path. One was reduced virtually into confetti. The other was probably just caught on the edge and ended up in pieces over a 4 kilometre stretch.  I was away at the time. Away is a good place to be sometimes.

Yes, I was safely well away at the time. Otherwise, I probably would have had to change my trousers a few times during that night. :shok:

 

That weather system spawned at least 5 tornados before moving off the coast and developing into Severe Tropical Cyclone George, cat 5.

Not mentioned in that ABC news story but he said the tornado was spinning clockwise. News to me that some in the Northern Hemisphere do do that.
