The winds of a tornado can reach speeds of up to 300 miles per hour (480km per hour) and although most last for less than ten minutes, travelling just a few miles, in extreme cases they can last for hours.

The awe awakening splendor caught on camera by Evgeny Drokov, from Russia, who was on holiday in Genoa with his family.  Mr Drokov said ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From our balcony, we were just two kilometers away from the marvel.

‘We could see it so well because the apartment was located on the hill at a distance. There wasn’t much rain at the time, it was pure luck.’
