Morning, I think we may have had a tornado in the early hours here. or at least exceedingly strong winds like I have never experienced before.
It was windy and raining anyway, but then you could kind of hear it coming and then 'hit' - a continued, very strong driving wind, and then you could hear it pass. We held our breath while it was happening, - children slept through it.
Fences down all across back garden, - that's all I can see so far.
At 3.20am. South Central/East Coast of England. (pm me if my exact location would be useful)
Can I pm you or you pm me please? The fact that it sounds like you've had things relocated sounds very useful and interesting. Things that will help are timing, exact location, which way your items went, how long the wind lasted for. Was there any other damage nearby to you? Did you see it at the time? (It was a bit early for a Sunday morning!)
It was 2007 ish, I live near dudley. I was looking out of my living room window, and it kind of went over the gardens between mine and my back neighbours house. It didn't touch down and it didn't do any damage to any properties here. I think it did elsewhere. It's not something you expect to see living in the Black Country!
Was anyone in that region this morning? Weather reports are needed please. If you dont want to give your location in public then you can either pm me or send a report to TORRO who are the UK leading researchers in severe storm events.
