Surrey UK: "mini-tornado" lifts feral cats in the air

taikedz (2782065) writes "A "mini-tornado" brought down trees, damaged property and even lifted cats in the air, an eyewitness has said.

Shirley Blay, who keeps horses at the Jolly Blossom Stables on Station Road, Chobham, told BBC Surrey: "It was a mini-tornado, I can't describe it as anything less. "It started with very heavy rain, hailstones and very strong wind and all of a sudden, the wind was very, very strong, to the point of lifting roofs.

"We've got four feral cats in the yard and they were being lifted off the ground — about 6ft off the ground — they just went round like a big paper bag." She said the people and animals who were caught up in the storm were uninjured. A spokesman from Valgrays Animal Rescue in Warlingham said: "It was like something out of a Steven Spielberg film."
