    Default Tornado/Microburst danger

    An impressive video, particularly the first 15 seconds. A cat flipped and a super yacht knocked down completely, but bare poles:

    It's not a problem but this video has actually been discussed before on here.

    You are right. I was sure I’d have seen it, but no, I didn’t. Anyway, I am thinking of a change and it has put me of cats somewhat. It’s a graphic demonstration of the power of nature.

    We were not in that particular microburst storm, thankfully, but we know that Nidri Bay is somewhat prone to them. We were in one a couple of years earlier in that bay and experienced very strong gusts that stirred up huge twisting clouds of dust and water. We, and many others, dragged in these gusts, in our case three times. At that time I had a Delta that had given excellent service for many years, never having dragged previously. I was prompted to replace it with a Rocna, one of the first bought in UK before there was an importer here.
