Tornado and hail move through Oxfordshire, UK

May 9, 2012UK Britain could be braced for more thunder and lightning following a storm which brought a tornado to Oxfordshire. The thunderstorm started in Wiltshire, and moved across Oxfordshire, where a tornado was reported in several places including Bicester, Eynsham and Witney, and then moved to Buckinghamshire. Richard Glazer drove through the tornado with his wife and son on the A34 near Kidlington, Oxfordshire. “It was very wet, we were just driving on the A34 and looked up and realized one part of the sky was moving in one direction and another in the opposite direction,” he said. I thought, ‘that looks like a tornado!’ We pretty much drove through it, we were right underneath it. Forecasters said it was almost certainly a tornado. Heavy rain has been predicted for much of the country in the coming week, with the possibility of thunder and lightning. Brendan Jones, a forecaster at MeteoGroup, said he believed the tornado was caused a by ‘supercell,’ a type of storm more commonly seen in the US in which the air inside is spinning or rotating. Mr Jones said: “It’s going to remain unsettled, there will be rain and showers around and there is a definite chance of more thunderstorm activity. “This particular thunderstorm developed over the northern part of Wiltshire, and then gradually over the next three hours that storm tracked through Oxfordshire and into part of Buckinghamshire before eventually dying out before it got to Cambridgeshire.” –Telegraph

    I didn’t get to your comment on the other post, but here’s what I found. I had heard about them on The Weather Channel. There’s not much news on either of them, just some YouTube videos. Guess most people don’t think it’s very newsworthy.

    Hi Alvin.

    In reference to the comment i posted yesterday about the Magnetosphere anomaly on 12th-13th march here’s a youtube video of the footage recorded prior to its removal.
    I think “they” realised something was off a little too late as this is missing only 6 hours of footage off of the 13th’s data.

    All evidence on nasa’s website has since been destroyed and the NICT Magnetosphere simulation has been removed (Terminated)

    It seems we was hit possibly by some sort of galactic wave or pre-cursor wave… The magnetosphere gets hit from behind and reverses the flow in a steady stream.. I have watched the magnetosphere simulation bouncing around for years now and i have never seen anything like this.
    Totally off the charts…

    If you remember back to then Bohemoth sunspot AR1429 put on a good show.
    X5.4 – March 7 2012 (1429)
    X1.3 – March 7 2012 (1429)
    M8.4 – March 10 2012 (1429)
    M7.9 – March 13 2012 (1429)

    Coincidence or Cause??? Unknown.

    Drop me a quick email with your thoughts..

      One of the comments also refer to the coronal hole that was visable on the sun..

      “March 12 and 13th is the same time that the large pyramid shaped black area on the sun appeared”

      Oh no, I used to lived in Grand Isle when I was little, until 1982, approximately. With everything else going on there right now, they don’t need that. Can’t say I’ve seen tornadoes cause damage on the island, only hurricane damage from wind.
