Two children have been killed and hundreds of people left homeless as tornadoes ripped through Duduza near Johannesburg and Ficksburg in the Free State.

Just to be clear, every year, around this time, we get tornados, and similar unusual weather activity. The only reason this was noticed was because it hit a settled area, normally the free state farmers don't bother reporting them when the tornado hits their mielies
That being said, how was that storm? Even more hectic since it wasn't an isolated cell, but spanned half the country!!
Have a look at: SA Weather Observer for some good information.
