Watch The Terrifying Moment A Tornado Rips Through This City

Terrified motorists have captured the moment a rare tornado tore through Luxembourg, ripping roofs of buildings and flinging debris against their car.

A rare tornado injured 19 people, two of them severely, as unseasonal storms hit northern Europe.

The tornado in the southwestern Luxembourg communities of Pettingen and Kaerjeng left a path of destruction that made up to 100 homes uninhabitable, local media reported Saturday.
