Kris,

That is definitely a nice damage path and one of a tornado. Thanks for posting and yet I would like to see more damage pictures of the event.

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara

Interesting to know how far it went inland. Looking at that path it has come off the water - could it have been a waterspout that then made landfall?

And no, I am not quite sure of the technical differences between a waterspout and a tornado if any :-)

EDIT - by manually going up one level on the website and looking at filenames there is another picture. Not sure why everything is dated 2006 though, possibly buggy website software.
