Im münsterländischen Bocholt hat in der Nacht zum Mittwoch ein Tornado erhebliche Schäden verursacht. Der Sturm hatte in einem Straßenzug verheerende Schäden angerichtet. Dachziegel wirbelten umher, ein Dach wurde vollständig abgedeckt. Ein Auto wurde vom Wind erfasst und zehn Meter weit durch die Luft geschleudert. Fenster und Wintergärten gingen zu Bruch, Bäume wurden entwurzelt. Insgesamt wurden nach Angaben der Stadt neun Häuser beschädigt und etwa 100 Bäume entwurzelt.

I'm expecting this to be deleted, but this is more than just anecdotal evidence of climate change. Tornadoes are all but unheard of in Germany, and the fact that there was one this severe is noteworthy. I have not found any mainstream reporting from English sources as yet.

1. One can readily run it through a translator, no matter how imperfect, however:

In the Münsterland Bocholt, a tornado caused considerable damage during the night of Wednesday. The storm had wreaked havoc on a stretch of road. Roof tiles swirled around, a roof was completely covered. A car was caught by the wind and thrown ten meters in the air. Windows and winter gardens were broken, trees were uprooted. In total, according to the city, nine houses were damaged and about 100 trees uprooted.

3. Okay

Google translation:

In the Münsterland Bocholt, a tornado caused considerable damage during the night of Wednesday. The storm had wreaked havoc on a stretch of road. Roof tiles swirled around, a roof was completely covered. A car was caught by the wind and thrown ten meters in the air. Windows and winter gardens were broken, trees were uprooted. In total, according to the city, nine houses were damaged and about 100 trees uprooted.

Your comment would be more helpful if there was any context.

Are tornados common in Munsterland Bocholt? If so, this is evidence of another tornado.

Do they happen rarely? If so, what do climate scientists or meteorologists have to say about this?

If this is the first ever in recorded history, then it may be very significant. But, again, it depends on climate changes elsewhere in the region. Have any German government scientists commented?
