Australian Dunoon tornado revisited

A new video of the Dunoon tornado from 2007 has been gaining popularity of late. This video is a full version of tornado with most of the never seen before cuts. This tornado was a logn lived tornado by Australian standards and caused some damage to building as well as destroying a church in Dunoon. The video shows Maccadamia Nut trees being hurled around the tornado and in one case a sheet of corrugated iron is hurled into the substation to produce the famous spectacular explosion! It is however the period prior with the initial touch down and latter part of the tornado that have been added and provide a true picture of the whole event!
