Tornado in Argentina's Santiago del Estero Province


Recommended Posts

A tornado leveled a small village in northern Argentina Friday night (Jauneau 26th). Local residents described an intense sound that lasted around a minute. Damage was reported in a 500 meter (180 feet aprox.) wide area that extended for 4 kilometers (2 miles aprox.) in small village of Asco in the Province of Santiago del Estero. No one died but damages mounted to properties in this very impoverished region of northern Argentina.
