    Lasy friday morning ,a mini tornado hit our village .It damaged roofs,cars,sucked out a window in local shop .whipped a roof off a workshop and its contents inside and continued further down to fields where it knocked trees.No one were injured and its path was pretty narrow with the damage confined to a path roughly 50 feet .Would the likes of this have happed often before in this country?

    If you go to the thunderstorm thread, Meteorite has a nice piece on it in there.

    You could look at a book just published, "Irish Tornadoes and Waterspouts: Ancient and modern" for some previous examples.

    edit: sent his email via PM, I think he'd be genuinely interested in hearing your experience

    edit2: same fella as book author above!
