A DESTRUCTIVE waterspout has reportedly crossed the coast at Lennox Head, causing damage in the surfing resort town. Buildings have been destroyed and power lines brought down, while police say more people may have been hurt when what has been described as a mini-tornado hit the town about 7.30am. At least one person is missing and a mother and daughter have been taken to hospital after being hit by flying debris, media reports say.

I actually live about half an hour from Lennox Head and you would not have known that was happening at the time, here anyway.
There was a violent thunderstorm for about 6 hours, from midnight until about 6 am, and then it started to clear up.
Those twisters must have come in off the water, I've seen them just south of Lennox Head before - at Ballina.
From memory, the footage takes place about 20-30 metres from the beach.
My parents used to have a van at the Lake Ainsworth Caravan Park, I know the park was hit, I doubt it would have survived as it was underneath huge trees.
I rang my friend who still lives there and they were all OK.
