    YEah, things get chewed up bad at the 8-9 minute mark, and 12 minutes.
    Most tornados target trailer parks, this one targeted rich people!
    I`m so glad I live in a (mostly) tornado-free area!

    Complaining about the weather is a national pastime here in England, but we get nothing like that. We do get tornadoes occasionally, but they`re rare and usually tiny short-lived things that cause minor property damage. The weather here very rarely destroys things or kills people.

    Odd coincidence - the original Birmingham is one of the few cities in England that has been hit by a fairly significant tornado in recent times. I remember that - it was big news here.

    This was nothing Angilion.

    The tornadoes that hit our state last April killed 250 people. This one killed 2.

    DID YOU KNOW: The UK and the Netherlands have the highest number of tornadoes per year relative to land space!

    The more you know.

    The US has about 4 times the number annually than the whole of Europe combined though, so, yeah, it`s swings & roundabouts really...

    @big: Don`t be a douche. Read a few posts down.

    "Had not even heard about this. Getting my news from IAB once again, nice."

    That`s why I do it. It just so happens that this event happened less than 10 miles from my home.
