Large Tornado in Italy
Addition: According to The Washington Post the tornado, which occurred earlier today, injured at least 20 and struck a steel factory.
(ANSA) - Taranto, November 28 - A worker is missing after the crane he was operating was blown into the sea when a tornado hit the troubled ILVA steel plant in Taranto, fire brigade sources said Wednesday.
Scuba-diver teams are reportedly on their way to Taranto to search for the worker as bad weather added to the plant's woes, with winds causing a tower and a building at the facility to collapse and a lightning bolt knocking down a chimney.
