For the first time this year, a tornado ravaged Hungary on Wednesday afternoon.
According to Időkép, the twister was seen late Wednesday afternoon near the village of Kétegyháza, in the southeastern tip of Hungary.
This is the first time Hungary has had a landfalling cloud cone in 2023, while a smaller vortex that has not yet touched down was already formed 28 times.
Attila Tomka spotted the tornado near the Orthodox cemetery in Kétegyháza. “I took a snap with my phone at five times magnification but it dissipated in a few seconds,” Tomka recalled the rare natural phenomenon.
Not only in Kétegyháza, but also in Pusztaottlaka, a settlement further west, the tornado was visible for a short while.
