'Tornado' in Singapore- First recorded landspout recorded


Singapore experienced its first 'tornado' on Sep 27.



In scene reminisce of 'Twister' , a landspout made its appearance at Gul Way, Tuas.

A landspout is defined as 'a tornado that forms from a thunderstorm that is not a supercell. They are essentially the land-based equivalent of waterspout'. It may not be the typical tornado that is spawned from a parent thunderstorm and certainly not as devasting, it did leave its footprint in this tiny island.

Over the years, we had witnessed Waterspouts in Singapore. This is our first time seeing a landspout in town and it sure made an impact with its appearance!
