Tornado in ..... France?
I have lived in France all my life and have never heard of a real tornado there, yet yesterday :
A freak tornado ripped through northern France overnight, killing three people and injuring nine as it gutted houses and hurled cars through the air, officials said Monday. (AFP)
As you can see on the pictures, it hit that place pretty hard.
it is the Netherlands that has the highest average number of recorded tornadoes per area of any country (more than 20, or 0.0013 per sq mi (0.00048 per km²), annually), followed by the UK (around 33, or 0.00035 per sq mi (0.00013 per km²), per year but most are small and cause minor damage.In absolute number of events, ignoring area, the UK experiences more tornadoes than any other European country, excluding waterspouts.The United States has the most tornadoes of any country, about four times more than estimated in all of Europe, not including waterspouts.
