Some say hurricanes or tornadoes are not possible in the center of Russia, in Moscow city. However in 1904 there was an event that shocked most of the people who saw it. The giant pillar of swirling air dropped on the suburbs of Moscow and swept through what was mainly the suburbs of Moscow at time. Tens or hundreds of houses
were demolished, and train cars and carriages were thrown around. All of this was preceded by a hail storm with hail the size of goose eggs. The photo above might be the only photo of the actual hurricane pillar, however inside there are plenty of more photos of this natural event and its aftermath.
