Ok getting a little desperate here but at least this is a UK event.
I would suggest you turn the sound down unless you like some lady making awful noises for the duration of the clip...oh yes its Opera..sorry !

Im sure most of us have some memories of this event, i certainly do.
Although having just viewed this video im not so sure i remember so much damage being caused. Rated as an EF2 according to this, not sure if that is an official rating but damage was signifigant.

And another video of the same event with some better footage as a camera crew are caught in the open as it passed close by.
Yet again we have the classic media mistake in saying it was a MINI-Tornado and they also claim that the camera crew were in the middle of the Tornado as well.
All the same still interesting to watch.




Interesting to see that the 2 videos show different dates as well !
This did occur on July 28th 2005.

This was rated as a T4 with a short spell at T5 on the TORRO scale which does equates to an EF2, wind speeds between 93-130mph.
Damage was estimated to be £40 million with over a 1000 tress uprooted .

I remember this days events - lots of heavy showers across the country, some producing these tornado's. Was this the same time of the Coventry Nado? May try and find that report....
