Wild German tornado narrowly misses the Netherlands (vid inside!)

The Netherlands has dodged a tornado, when one went through the city of Viersen in Germany yesterday. It’s located close to the border of Venlo. So it was pretty damn close. Luckily, they are a rarity and they can be worse, but it’s scary all the same.

So, how bad was it?

Well no tornado is good, but 2 people were seriously injured, one of them was a firefighter hit by lightening. It also pulled off roofs and trees were uprooted.


Check out the video – it does look pretty scary:
