Devasting Tornado strikes Western France

The second tornado in less than a week caused havoc in western France on Wednesday, but experts say the phenomenon is nothing too extreme for that part of the country.

The latest tornado to hit the Charente Maritime département in western France caused damage in several villages around the town of Saints.

Although no one was hurt the vortex of swirling air caused damage to around 50 buildings.

The tornado, which was caught on video by a witness, looks like something you’d expect in the mid-west of America rather on the west coast of France reported thelocalfr.
