New dramatic video: Rare Russian tornado rips through town

One victim was killed by a destructive twister as it swept through Russia's Far East. 28 others were injured by the huge whirlwind, a natural phenomenon considered rare, not only for the region, but for the whole country. The tornado tore through the center of Blagoveshchensk, tearing roof-tops and balconies from over a hundred buildings, overturning trucks, uprooting trees and ripping out power lines. It raged only for several minutes but eyewitness reported that it caused incredible damage. Most roads have now been cleared, but hundreds of homes are still without electricity.
