A rare tornado hit the city of Gavar in Armenia on June 11, 2020. 

Gagik Surenyan, head of the Meteorological Center of the Hydromet Service at the Ministry of Emergency Situations, said the phenomenon was considered unusual in the country.

"I was home when my friend called me and told me to look out the window. At first, I was very surprised, I couldn't believe my eyes when I realized what was happening," a resident named Marina Mukhsikhchoyan said.
