I don't equate Italy with tornadoes at all.

That seems strange to me! I hope no one was injured!

RedPat said...

That seems unusual to me too! The world's weather is all very disturbed!

Jack said...

A tornado in Livorno? That is a big surprise. Glad the effects were not especially bad.

Lowell said...

OMG! I had no idea you had tornadoes in that area. They're awful. Florida gets a lot of them; often on the back end of hurricanes. I hope no one was hurt. Great shot of the firefighters!

In quiet times we tend to forget that the world is a dangerous place.
I'm so glad Livorno was spared any greater damage. Good onya for going out and documenting the places hit. A tornado, wow!
That fire truck hardly has enough room in the narrow street.

It didn't make the news in Germany. Glad there was no big damage and the firefighters have more to do!

Tornadoes are scary, that's for sure! The streets are so narrow that I'm amazed that the firefighters can get through!

I see that I'm not the only one who finds it strange to hear of a tornado in Italy. I'm glad there wasn't much damage. Over hear, they can be quite devastating as I'm sure you've heard.

It happens, and even if there's not a lot of damage as a result, it's good work for them to be ready for a much bigger emergency.

Wow! Was Dorothy and Toto around? You'd never know it happened looking at that sky now.

Marleen said...

The most important thing is that nobody was hurt.

Gunn said...

Good that the tornado did not make more damage.
Tornado.... is what we hear about on the news, something happening in the USA.... or a long long away from Europe.

Lois said...

Very scary! I'm glad the damage was not too bad.
