    Lucifer's tail has hit the Finland. When I look at the lightning map (https://www.lightningmaps.org), it showed that the storm is from Lithuania over Latvia and Estonia to Finland. MASSIVE!

    It is always a good idea to built house of glass... (sorry about the Finnish language in the news)

    Are those candies for sale? ;)

    There came water like never before. It look like my car is at the pressure washer. And there should come even more water from the sky about an hour or two...

    That sounds absolutely scary. I hope that this will end up good for you.

    Huh... we don't have hurricanes/tornados here, but that was scary as hell... like the name promised. From the lighting radar it look like it hit the Estonia even worse than Finland...

    Here is video from Helsinki-Vantaa airport how quickly the storm moves and some pictures. I apologies Finnish text.

    I'm glad to be alive.

    Anywhere strong thunderstorms occur, tornadoes can also occur. But they are often hard to see, because they're embedded in the thunderstorm and they often happen in the evening when it's dark. Europe has always has had infrequent, strong storms... with hail and tornadoes... but that storm looked pretty scary!

    You should come to the midwest US in the spring! Nothing like tornado season!

    Be safe out there.
