    Video of the "weather event"

    that produced the "wind" that did damage in NOORD.
    much damage was done to St Anne's Catholic Church, school and numerous homes and businesses.

    some are saying it was a tornado.
    the official report did not call it a tornado.

    it happened before 7 am
    there was a horrible thunderstorm that morning.

    anyway, here is the link to the you tube video.

    Looked just like the tornado that hit upstate New York over the weekend. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados - I'm afraid global warming is upon us!!!

    Andrea, you guessed correctly. One person said OMG, another said mira, mira which means look, look, look at the way its forming and shaping. One guy said I just drove by from that section and was just cruising around.

    I hope the weather is great when I go. I have never experienced bad weather on vacation in 25 years of vacationing. This year in NY Earth Quake, Hurricane, mini tornatoes and today it is raining like crazy for the next 3 days...

    Much less impressive, but yesterday, I spotted a waterspout off San Nicolaas as a thunderstorm passed through. Made a video as seen from Savaneta. Not spectacular, but cool.
