Mini tornado brings destruction to parts of Hampshire

Daily Echo: Tornado throws buildings 100 metres and brings damage and destruction Tornado throws buildings 100 metres and brings damage and destruction

A MINI tornado struck a Hampshire hamlet bringing widespread destruction.

Three temporary farm buildings were lifted by the wind and carried 100 metres through the air at Wield, north of Alresford on Saturday.

Janet Sole, of Blackmoor Game Ltd at Wield Wood Farm, said: "It was an absolutely unbelievable sight.

“It happened on Saturday afternoon in just a five-minute period. We are still without power or water.

Daily Echo:

"To give you an idea of size these sheds weigh almost two tons each and three of them were lifted up in the tornado and carried more than 100 metres through the air.

"Two of the sheds are in debris on the adjoining field but the third one ended up wrapped around our three phase electricity pole bringing it down across our drive.”

Several cars were trapped by the violent but brief storm.

Fire crews from Winchester were called out to the A33 near Kings Worthy at 5.05pm after a car crashed into a fallen tree.

No-one was reported to have been seriously hurt.

Before the storm

The sky turns gray

The clouds roll in

The sun tucks away



During the storm

The strong wind blows

The sky is wild

The rainwater flows



After the storm

The clouds say “adieu”

The sun peeks back out

The sky turns to blue

I think we all got hit by that thing on Saturday.
I know that for about five minutes everything went crazy, the trees were bending all over the place, the doors were all banging about & the rain was horizontal.
As Dorothy said I don't think we're in Kansas anymore Todo :)
