    My people tell me that a freak tornado swept through Lagos and Silves in the early hours of this morning.

    I understand a motorhome, with people sleeping inside it was swept up and overturned...

    :Eeek:

    More news if I get any...

    JJ :Cool:

    It would take more than a tornado to overturn JJs van with all those FB pies inside.

    Out of interest where is Lagoa in relation to Lagos? Feel sorry for them wherever it is. I guess insurance will cough up although you will never get the real value to you, but it is still devastating.

    Well done, that's really jumping in off the deep end.

    Now go tie it down securely !
