Tornado in Penang

Travel News July 13th, 2007

The global warming effect has created unpredictable weather globally. Last week a tornado has occurred in Penang. The strength of this tornado is nothing to worry and it has never made to the shore. As far as I know, there’s no history has been recorded where Penang been hit by strong tornado. This tornado is maybe the strongest we have seen.

It’s rare to see tornado in Penang. So, Penangites were watching the tornado like watching a magic show without concerning their own safety. What happen if the tornado getting bigger and hit the shore? Many will die because of their ignorance.

    sorry guys, but this tornado in singapore east coast park, my friend happened to be boating at that time, took the photos, singaporeans will recognise the beach easily.

    Ron & concern malaysian, it does happen before in malaysia but this one happens to be in singapore east coast park. By the way it is a waterspout since it is over the sea. Ron, a cloud with just a shape of tornado spiraling down is the biggest joke I ever heard.

    @concern malaysian

    I do agree your statement of “Malaysia is the most safe place now to live”, especially to the Mongolians!

    This is a waterspout that happened in Singapore’s East Coast Park. Please do some research. If a tornado were to happen in Penang, it is sure to be covered by the news already. Stop insisting that this is a tornado, get your facts right.

    In Malaysia, tornado has never been recorded but it is possible to happen. According to the meteorologist, tornado could happen anywhere around the world. Furthermore, the global warming is getting serious. If the tornado did happen in Malaysia, it is nothing strange. The tornado in this picture, whether was in Penang, it is not that matters, what matters is, if this tornado was happening in Asia, it means that tornado could happen in Malaysia if the weather conditions are fit. According to the size of the tornado, it was estimated F2 tornado which the wind force is really terrible. The tornado that occurred in Perlis, 14/4/2010 was estimated as F1 tornado, which the destruction is less but it could expand to higher class in Fujita scale that measure the force of tornado. However, the exact scale only can be confirmed after check the destruction after tornado.
