Second tornado in just 8 days hits Belgium

A second tornado in just 8 days hit Belgium on June 27, 2021, this time in the province of Luxembourg.

The tornado hit the hamlet of Bernistrap in Houffalize where a square farmhouse-castle collapsed amid strong winds. While there were no injuries, its inhabitants had to be relocated.

"There's nothing left. Everything is gone: the roofs, the walls are unstable, the house is uninhabitable," Josette Deville told In24.

The tornado also damaged parts of the nearby graveyard.

Severe thunderstorms spawned a destructive tornado in the town of Beauraing in Namur province on June 19, injuring 17 people and leaving as many as 92 homes severely damaged, 10 of which were declared unfit for habitation.

"The wind was incredibly strong. Houses and cars got damaged, trees were uprooted," Beauraing Mayor Marc Lejeune told Francophone public broadcaster RTBF.
