Did anyone see today's news services showing the tornado footage? I saw part of it, here's a Cyprus News link but haven't found video footage on the net yet. http://www.cna.org.cy/newse/. Cyprus also experienced a tornado on 19 Aug 01.

Yeah i saw it on ch10 and ch7. Three tornados out of the one cloud at the one time, and not a single fatality eek . And you could see it in amongst the buildings of some big town woth all this debris being sucked up into it. It looked like two of three were over the sea.
