Hi,

Wow did anyone see that Tornado this morning.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gppQAueb81A

I was getting ready to go out and all of a sudden everything went black and there was an almighty racket outside. It onlt lasted about 4 mins or so but it was quite scarey.
When I went outside everything had been blown about. I had to rescue my table and 4 chairs from the bottom of the garden - one was impaled on the handle of my wheel barrow. My big apple tree was uprooted and another tilted at an angle.
I've been finding bits of my washing all day, most of it down the road.
After tidying up all the mess I noticed 3 large sheets of corrogated tin roof in one of my olive trees. It blew off the roof of a house about 5 minutes walk from my house on the other side of the N110. I can't imagine what would have happened if that had hit someone flying at 200km an hour.
The funny thing is by lunchtime I was sitting out in the sun in my garden as if nothing had happened.
I was lucky, but as you can see in the utube video, some people had real damage to their properties.
I tried to add an image of the corrigated metal in my tree but not sure how to attach. I took the photo for my neighbours insurance claim.

Thanks for the link Lobito. Looks like we were really lucky here compared to the poor folk in Torres Nova.

Digger, I spent the last 10 or so years living and working in Tooting and the sun comes out now after I've left. Typical.
