Powerful Tornadoes Destroy Dozens of Homes in Australia

Posted by feww on March 22, 2013

Two tornadoes leave a trail of destruction across Victoria, NSW injuring at least 20 people

Destructive twisters described as “terrifying,”  ripped through Murray River towns of Bundalong, Yarrawonga, Mulwala, Rutherglen, Koonoomoo and Cobram, leaving at least 20 people injured, five seriously, more than 60 homes uninhabitable, and many more houses, mobile homes and businesses damaged, reports said.

  • The tornadoes have been assessed as between F1 and F2 on the F-Scale rating, with wind speeds between 118 and 254km/h [F3?] and a destruction path 150m – 250m wide, said the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
  • A local official in Mulwala described his town as “looking like a war zone” after the tornadoes swept through.
  • “It’s just like a bomb went off. Trees have got no leaves. It’s just defoliated them. It looks like Agent Orange has sort of gone through there and stripped them.”
  • Another official said:  “It is colossal damage, this will cost millions to fix.”
  • “Big trees that weigh tonnes have been plucked from the ground and dragged and smashed everywhere.”
