Here is an interesting link.

Russia and Middle East[edit]

Should Russian tornadoes be included in Europe, Asia, or both (and if both, should differentiate between western and the rest of Russia?)

Some areas of the Middle East are ambiguous. The Arabian Peninsula should go with Asia for certain; and I would throw the rest in as well. The other option for ambiguous cases would be to also include respective events with Europe or Africa, respectively.

seems like a good guide for cultural and physical geography. Evolauxia 11:19, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Could some editor at Wikipedia make an attempt to link the article in this section about the 1984 tornado in Russia with a similar article in the section entitled "List of natural disasters". I guess it is because the template is protected in "List of natural disasters" and I do not know enough about going through the process to unprotect an entry. These two things should be automatically linked.

Good source of links to news articles and other sites[edit]

Sirlinksalot Tornado Links has a large collection of links to various tornadoes sites, and if you go to "News Articles about Tornadoes" has links to many, many news articles about tornado events around the globe. Evolauxia 22:27, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Tay Bridge tornado[edit]

Is this correct? If so, could we have a citation? I have never heard that the Tay Bridge disaster was attributed to a tornado - faulty design and poor workmanship are usually cited. There is no mention of it on the Tay Bridge disaster page to which the link takes you. --Karenjc 22:53, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

It is said to be a waterpout(s) that struck the bridge during a windstorm that weakened the poorly constructed bridge. This is the source, however, there are some doubts. Evolauxia 23:08, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

More UK Tornadoes[edit]

Just a few that I know are missing - very recently there was one in Farnborough, Hants. It was just one of a group that hit the UK that day according to our news sources. I believe Farnborough was also hit in December 2006 as well though it was fairly small I believe. A tornado hit Selsey, on the south coast, on 7th January 1998 and caused a fair bit of damage. Bognor Regis (another south coast town) was hit on October 30, 2000 and Selsey was hit again, the same day. I know that tornadoes are not uncommon in the UK and that square mile for square mile, we are reputed to have twice as many as the US though generally most are unseen and they're much weaker, but these are all ones that hit at least our national news. I'm not sure, however, if these are notable enough, or if the news reports alone are enough to make them verifiable. Anyone want to pitch in? 86.3.150.116 16:43, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
