CÔTE D’AZUR, France - Visitors were treated to a rather unsual event over the weekend. On Saturday, several tornadoes and waterspouts hit the southern part of France between noon and 4pm, reports The Local.
The phenomoenon is uncommon for this part of the world. On average, only one tornado a year forms itself in the Mediterreanean Sea. Amateur footage below shows a tornado swirling around off the coast of Antibes.
