Sad to say, this is not some sort of spoof.
In the early hours of this
morning, a tornado (a rare thing indeed round that way
) ripped through the town of San Pedro in the Misiones region of Argentina (its northernmost tip, see map
) and left 10 people dead and over 50 injured. Check out a video display on this page over at Clarín
for evidence of the devastation.
Knowing the area personally (from an extended stay a few years ago) and the wonderful, generous people that live there, my heart goes out. Those of you sitting in the twister zones up North have a better idea of what these people have just been through.
