Tornadoes in Europe: Italy (with Top 10 most noteworthy tornadoes)
No. 10: June 12, 2012 Venezia, Veneto (north Italy) F1 tornado
Venice definitely is a regional hot spot for tornadoes. A photogenic, and fortunately mostly benign tornado touched down in the Venice lagoon in the morning of June 12, 2012. The F1 tornado produced a 10.5 km damage track, mostly across the lagoon. Another tornado with a 10 km track touched down less than an hour later (10 am local) just to the northeast, near Jesolo.
