Yes folks, you heard me correctly.
Tornadoes have hit Wales and the Midlands, driven by a cold front blasting in.
Interestingly enough, Britain actually experiences more tornadoes than America does per area, but few of them ever reach above F2 in strength, a mere
157 mph wind speed not really grabbing the same headlines, or for that matter threatening nearly as much damage, although they still can and do cause
damage and injury. Birmingham was hit in 2005 by a tornado which did about forty million pounds worth of damage, for example. However, most of our
tornadoes simply whip lightweight items into a vortex, and then dissipate having caused nothing more than rustled feathers and overturned garbage
The tornadoes striking Wales and the Midlands appear to have taken down some trees, overturned some caravans, and caused a bit of havoc generally,
but no deaths have been reported as of yet. I would hope that trend continues as the weather calms down, which it is reported to do throughout the
rest of the afternoon.
