A large tornado ripped through Mineo in Sicily, Italy, on Tuesday afternoon, July 14, 2020, causing major damage.
The twister occurred during violent storms that battered southern Italy, including Sardinia and Calabria. Sicily was the most affected region as 30 mm (1.2 inches) of rain fell in the area.
According to Meteo Web, the tornado that hit the countryside of Mineo was so extreme that it inflicted major damage in an industrial area.
A local named Loredana Nolfo said the storm carried materials from the industrial site into the air.
Damage assessment and inspections have been conducted.
