Video from inside a TornadoNovember 30th, 2012 at 12:45 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
You may have seen this video (it’s been on the Weather Channel and elsewhere) of a tornado in the town of Silves, on the south shore of Portugal on Nov. 16th. The tornado has been estimated to be a weak EF3 at its strongest point. Thirteen people treated for injuries at a local hospital. Most of the injured where in vehicles that were overturned by the twister. The tornado ripped the roof off a school and left hundreds temporarily homeless. The storm was accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds. Here’s more video and pictures. A second tornado (a much weaker EF0 hit 10 kilometers away at Alvor. On Nov. 6, 1954, a tornado hit Castelo Branco, Portugal. There were four fatalities and approximately 200 were injured in that storm.
Also, looks like the entire Lower 48 states will have above average temperatures to December, with the cold locked into NW Canada and Alaska.
