A large tornado hit Rocca di Neto, province of Crotone, Calabria region around 11:30 UTC (12:30 LT) on November 25, 2018, causing significant infrastructural damage and leaving several people injured. This is the second tornado to hit the province in 5 days.

The twister caused considerable damage to the Le Spighe shopping center and nearby houses, local authorities said.

While the tornado remained far from the main urban areas, several people were injured and the infrastructural damage is high.

Serious damage was also reported between Botricello and Cropani Marina.

State Road 106 has been temporarily closed to allow the rescue vehicles to survey the area and clean up.

This is the second tornado to hit the area since November 20, when at least three destructive tornados formed over southern Italy.
