I saw the news last night about a tornado that strikes in the city of Manila. OMG! We seldom see tornadoes here in our country and I was really horrified seeing one being visible in the city proper. I just hope less people were hurt in a such horrifying incident. Personally, I have not seen a tornado ever since and I am not longing to see one in the future. Have you seen a tornado before?

I have seen one before. It was overhead, but did not touch down near us. A rather scary sight for sure.

Even though I live in south Louisiana I have never seen a tornado up close and personal except on television reports.

@Macarrosel I know what you mean. I have been through Hurricanes Cindy and Katrina. They are scary enough.

I saw one last Sunday and it passed by my place. It was a 3-minute terrifying experience.

Yes, it's a really big one my friend, and we're safe here because Manila is a far away city from our place.

WE donĀ“t have tornadoes in our country. But we have earthquakes. Earth is not a paradise

We've had tornado warnings in my area and they scare the life out of me. So far we've never had one but other parts of the US get them frequently. Of all types of storms I think a tornado scares me the most

@Macarrosel not something we experience in such a way in the UK - must be terrifying to face it

I have seen one before and it was really scary. It wasn't far from my house but fortunately, it didn't hit any homes but it did hit part of a mall.

Looks like climate change is here, we didn't have this decades ago even with the strongest typhoon. we all have to be ready for the worst to come, and to think most people believe that climate change is a lie.

I think it's not climate change which is false but it's global warming that they said it doesn't exist. Yes, you're right, we seldom experience tornadoes here in our country.

I have seen some when I was a kid in our province but never happened in Manila as far as I can remember. It's really shocking.

Germany is not typical tornado country although small ones have been seen here. Yet, not in my region.
