Toulouse tornadoes a hit on YouTube
15:27 CEST+02:00

Unusual spring weather in southern France has become an internet sensation – Toulouse tornadoes have taken YouTube by storm.

The tornado was filmed by several inhabitants of the Muret and Seysses regions of south-west Toulouse Sunday night.

Yellow in colour, it formed in the sky and came down to the ground in about five minutes, causing some damage to a nearby farm.

 

The rest of France experienced high winds over the weekend, reaching 150km/h in some regions, causing trees to fall, ripping off roves and cutting off electricity to about 16,000 homes.
