Tornado rips off roof in Woodbrook

A small tornado has ripped the roof off a building at the corner of Rosalino Street and Wrightson Road in Port-of-Spain.

It occurred just after 1 pm.

Video footage showed galvanise from the building swirling in the air, before coming into contact with electricity wires.

This resulted in a bright flash as electricity was cut off in parts of Woodbrook.

The Fire Services responded and was working on the situation until mid-afternoon.

We will have more on this later.
