I was investigating what appears to be a tornado touchdown this week. It killed one and injured 400 people. It was the strangest damage I have ever seen. It was a kilometer wide swath of light destruction that went on for about 4km - amid the path, a roof taken off in one place, but all around other roofs ok. Then a tree down, while other trees around it undamaged. I get the feeling this was a very wide F1 event. But it's got me thinking about microbursts, could these be involved as well? The question is just how much damage can a burst do? Observe the two damage pics attached below? I'd be interested to know what others, who might have seen this sort of thing before, think? Notice how everything around the damaged bits seems to be untouched. Could this be long exposure type damage, considering it appears to be a kilometer wide, but the tornadic winds were relatively light? The metal roofing wrapped around the lampole makes me think this was a tornado. The collapsed concrete wall you see was steel reinforced into the ground.
