Mini tornado ?

Post by NoOne » Sun Aug 05, 2018 8:10 pm

Did anyone else experience a freak blast of wind on Sunday ?
Im in central walton and it was a very windless day in general. However at approx 2p.m. My heavy parasol was ripped out of my garden and landed in the neighbours. The same blast hit the neighbours either side of me with parasols flying. I ran out to the garden on hearing the noise to see my neighbours parasol flipped over a second time. Then it was windless again.c

Met Office think this hot spell will last until October so imagine many more freak incidents! Some of the plants in my garden -- the few that have survived are almost in bloom -- would normally flower in Sept.

Absolutely, exact same where we are, the gazebo took off into next door's hedge and was only stopped by the washing line.

I have photos :lol:
