Learning something new every day

Tornadoes occur across Ireland “on a widespread scale quite often” but it is “very rare when they touch the ground and nearly impossible to forecast”, [Siobhan Ryan of Met Eireann] told Today FM radio earlier.

That from the Irish Times, about bad weather and heavy rain across central Ireland, and — in particular — a “tornado” in County Galway, so:

some 150 homes were without electricity following high winds in Co Galway last night. The Clonfert and Banagher areas were worst affected, according to ESB Networks.

For what it’s worth, it has been tipping down in (old) York this evening.
