Russian tornado injures 20

5 replies 68 views Edited May 23, 2013

A tornado has torn roofs from schools and other structures in a town south of Moscow. It damaged 180 buildings and injured 20 people, including 3 small children.

The twister struck on Wednesday in the town of Yefremov in the Tula region, about 300 kilometers south of the Russian capital.

It ripped off the roofs and shattered windows of homes, schools and kindergartens.

Video images show a funnel cloud sucking up objects and debris as it approaches the town.

Gale-force winds flipped over cars and uprooted trees.

Workers from Russia's Ministry for Emergency Situations have arrived in Yefremov to survey damage, and help with repairs and restoring the power supply.

Russia's meteorological agency says atmospheric conditions were unstable at the time the twister struck, due to a passing cold front.

Didn't know that Russia could get tornados. Thoughts and prayers go out to those injured by it there.

I didn't know Russia could have tornadoes, but I certainly want to offer my prayers and condolences to the 20 people who were injured, especially the 3 small children. :smileysad:
