Tornado! In King's Heath, Birmingham, UK!

Apparently a tornado has damaged buildings and injured pedestrians just a mile or so from where I am at the moment in King's Heath.

OK, so it's only a "mini-tornado" and nothing compared to the real stuff some of you regular readers will have experienced. But hey, this kind of shit doesn't happen to me very often.

To be honest, we didn't notice much at all here. It got a bit dark and a touch windy but nothing that would make me suspect that I was just a mile away from a tornado. Weird.

What with all the terrorist attacks recently, several people locally thought bombs had gone off in King's Heath due to the very sharp claps of thunder and the sudden arrival of all the emergency services.

Update: Apparently "They happen in several places in the Midlands in most years so they're not that uncommon." Well, they're bloody uncommon to me!
