Now, this is something I never expected in the middle of Mexico city:




Description translation:

June 1st , 6 p.m. aprox. In one corner of central Av. (near Tlatelolco) while waiting for a cab, I found this atipical wind that turned into a movie's tornado. I couldn't let it go, so I record it. The quality isn't good but the content is shocking.

That was incredible. I reminds me of living in the outskirts of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It is right in the middle of tornado ally. I have seen some big ones and the horrendous damage, injuries, and deaths left in their wakes.

The camerawoman has a lucky escape!
At the beginning of the clip you can see the trees lay down as she is walking around in it...

That dropped maybe 20 feet from her. Wow. Couldnt see it real well but thats before it brought up debris I think.

One of vehicles tipped over was a Van or something bigger than a regular car. Might be one of the best videos close up of a Tornado I have seen.

Rare?? Super rare!! I never hear of tornados here in México city Ever! I have seen little circular winds, but something this strong is unprecedent.

On youtube everybody was surprise by the courage of the lady that recorded this. She was Ok.

Tornadoes are not considered rare in Mexico, but generally they are more common in Northern Mexico.

I thought this was interesting while reading up on this tornado.


The whirlwind hovered for a while above Tlatelolco, Tenochtitlan's twin city, before moving to the lake where it disappeared. Analyzing the account in the context of Nahua culture and contrasting it with contemporary European descriptions of tornadoes and waterspouts shows that the described phenomenon was a tornado. This conclusion receives further support from eighteenth-and nineteenth-century pictorial and written evidence showing that tornadoes do occur in the territory now occupied by Mexico City. Since the tornado of Tlatelolco predates the Cambridge, Massachusetts, tornado of 1680, it represents the earliest documented tornado in the Americas.

I love the era of the video cam and cell cam.

Front row, up close and personal. I'm sitting here and suddenly, I'm there! Right there with those people seeing and feeling what they are. Amazing...

You're lucky you weren't hurt by flying debris. Forget the movie next time and watch you don't get hit by something flying around.

Hmmm. Guess they didn't get the tornado drills in school, or the public warning sirens like we have here in tornado alley.

What the heck was she doing outside? I thought it was a man taking the video and she was trying to get him to come in out of danger.

Heck, the other people didn't know to take shelter either?
When did this happen?

I just wonder how the video OP managed to stay on her feet while the trees were being flattened a few car lengths in front of her. Did she have like Megaman boots on or something?
Crazy video, s&F

WOW! I live close to tornado alley, and we run for cover. I am amazed that the person videoed this as the tornado was flipping cars. WOW!

We never see this kind of phenomena before. People just do not know what to do or what to expect. Even more, it is very difficult to believe is happening!!!

She was just there, in a typical Friday afternoon, waiting for a cab to come, and suddenly trees are going down crossing the street???? What the heck??? Looks like it formed just there and then.

" Oyeee acaban de poner el audio de tu video en el programa Los desvelados en 98.5 fm, que segun por que se oyen unas "voces" extrañas.. pero mas bien creo es por la definicion de audio de tu cel, igual tapaste el micro y se oyo raro, nose jejeje pero lo van a Analizar, por si es un "lenguaje" oculto ..... como ven? "
