A new powerful tornado struck in Puglia , precisely in Salento, just over five days from the other whirlwind phenomenon that hit the Lecce.

The tornado developed within a strong storm that struck central Calabria this morning, causing a big tornado there.

In Salento the tornado developed around 16.00 and hit in particular the southern Lecce between Patù and Tricase where there were numerous damages.

The tornado traveled several kilometers before crossing Tricase , where it reached its maximum size and maximum intensity.

Later the tornado threw itself into the sea, but leaving behind him a trail of massive damage. Judging by the damage caused, we could talk about a F2 tornado on the Fujita scale , which is a tornado able to emit winds over 200 km / h.
