I've moved those YouTube videos of Australian tornadoes to another thread in general weather as they did not really belong in this one.

That is one enormous gust front. Hate to be under that one as it come through. Might end up a piece of debris. (lol)

Pete,

I will try remaining on topic with little deviation from the videos that will be posted in this thread so continue all to post more videos.

In regards to this event, the winds were of the order of 160 to 170 kilometres per hour in some regions - a woman was killed in the town that we stayed at that night after we were hammered by violent winds ourselves. Sme vehicles that parked near a gravel piled realised how winds can utilise the gravel to damage your windows!

Back to the videos - I may post links to the lightning and shelf cloud associated with our view of this event.

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara

Hi Mike,

That is a nice great coloured tornado and nice elephant trunk tornado. There is another tornado video that looks much like the Dunoon tornado with white vapour vorticies and up motion though it is much more separated from the precipitation.

Check out this tornado for close comfort

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvqd55LyJDk


And the news report shows some nice multi-vortex action:

Hi,

And whilst we are on the concept of tornadoes, how about we check May 29 2004 tornadoes - now they were in some cases long lived and violent a swell as the storm in southern Kansas being a multiple tornado producer. This one goes for a while.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJvgKCTIZ1Y

And this one really shows violent rotation that is only observed when you have a serious tornado imminent! Just watch the rotation in this!

Incredible cone-shaped tornado in southern Brazil! February 16, 2008
« Reply #11 on: 06 March 2008, 03:05:00 AM »
Unless I missed something, I don't think anybody's posted this in here before!

On February 16, 2008, a tornado struck the town of Tubarao in southern Brazil just south of the major city of Florianopolis, which is at about the same latitude as Brisbane. It caused some severe damage to homes and buildings, apparently probably equivalent to EF-1/EF-2 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.

Nice Youtube vid of the tornado in action. Note how lightning active the supercell was.
http://www.youtube.com/v/qdCiOL7EOko

Another video of the tornado. With those subtropical green hills and farmland and if it weren't for the fact that Brazilians drive on the right side, this could've easily been a scene right out of SE QLD or NE NSW!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9POUOEVeMG0

Newsclip about the tornado. Although it's in Portuguese, I've decided to still post this, for at 00:27, you can see the damage caused by the tornado,and at 00:35, there is a condensation/debris cloud near ground level which resembles somewhat the Dunoon, NSW tornado on Oct. 26, 2007.
http://www.youtube.com/v/JzrxLpWPOSo

These three pics and two radar images below are from Tornado World (http://www.metsul.com/blog/?cod_blog=3), a Brazilian weather blog site. Note the clear slot behind the tornado and a CG in the middle pic. The radar images both appear to indicate that the parent storm was a supercell typical of what you would expect in the Southern Hemisphere.
