Twenty injured as tornado tears through Australian towns
SYDNEY (AFP) - More than 20 people were injured when a tornado tore through communities in Australia, with witnesses saying on Friday that it felt like a bomb going off.
The fierce storm hit several towns in Victoria state late on Thursday.
"With an incident like this, there is always the potential to be faced with mass casualties. We were very grateful that we only had one person who was seriously injured," said Ambulance Victoria official Jon Byrne.
Most people suffered cuts and fractures after being hit by flying debris.
