    Tornado in Venice Flips Boats, Damages Structures

    Storified by Accu Weather · Wed, Jun 13 2012 08:08:49

    At 11:20 am local time, a funnel cloud was reported in Venice, Italy.
    Venice's location can be compared to that of the Plains' region of the United States, AccuWeather meteorologist Henry Margusity said. Venice is wedged between the Alps and the Adriatic sea, whereas in the United States, the Plains sit between the Rocky Mountains and the Gulf of Mexico. The ingredients a tornado needs are moisture in the air, a strong jet stream and a system to promote rapid lifting.
