Rare Tornado Kills Two Near Rome, Italy

A large tornado north of Rome, Italy Sunday.
A fairly rare, but powerful tornado swept through areas of Italy near Rome Sunday, killing two people, according to media reports.

A 25 year old man died when a cornice fell off a building during the tornado in Ladispoli, north of Rome, killing him. A 74 year old man died when a tree fell on him.

Video of the tornado, which you can see below, shows a wide, wedged shaped tornado, the kind that often tend to be particularly strong.

There was widespread damage to buildings, cars and trees north of Rome.

Damaging tornadoes occasionally strike Italy, so it's not unheard of to have something like this. But it's still relatively rare, especially in cases like this one where there were unfortunately fatalities.

Here's a video of the Italy tornado and its destructive aftermath Sunday:
