An 80 meter wide tornado front leaves shambles near Eisenstadt.

Karl Tinhof is left in disbelief about having actually experienced this scene. “It was like a bomb attack. Trees simply snapped off, the bricks of houses were ripped off and dashing like bullets into the walls of other houses, terrible.” The operations manager of the fire department of Müllendorf says it’s a miracle that nobody died.

Since Saturday 3:28 pm the tranquil location in the district of Eisenstadt-Umgebung has been in shock. An 80 meter wide tornado swept over houses and gardens, unroofed dozens of houses, uprooted trees, and in three of the houses the trusses came off. A weather phenomenon that’s in fact only known from Hollywood Blockbusters such as Twister has become an eerie reality.
