A tornado struck Suffolk in England on November 12, smashing greenhouses, tearing off roof tiles, and uprooting trees.
Britain has one of the highest frequencies of tornadoes in the world, partly because of its weather patterns, and partly they are easily spotted in a densely populated country….
The largest tornado swarm in Britain was recorded on November 21, 1981, when 105 tornadoes struck in a few hours as a cold front swept down from North Wales to southeast England.
They smashed hundreds of homes, wrecked caravans and uprooted trees. Eyewitnesses described how the skies suddenly plunged into darkness before a terrifying roar, like an approaching train, was heard and ferocious whirling winds struck.
