The wind power was 30-45 meters per second: many trees were uprooted, metal power poles were broken, roofs were torn off from houses.

The rescue equipment failed to get the regions because of the sand-stone storm that was strong enough to wreck cars, leave holes in metal parts and break glass.

    Ron is correct……. Igor, this is called a Tornado in English, your translator was incorrect. To xm3, the trees are painted white for keeping out wood boring bugs. It use to be common in the Southern USA. Thanks Igor for all the cool pictures!

      Love the pics, and I’ve seen trees, here in Canada, painted white on the base, but more for reflective qualities than bugs, as the white base makes them more visible. I suppose they could be for either purpose.

      It isn’t and never was common to paint trees white here in this part of southern USA. Did see alot of it done in Indiana though.
