Yesterday, several strong storms clashed above the small town of Krasnozavodsk of the Moscow region. The resulting tornado shredded through the town, overturning cars, uprooting trees and destroying homes. After devastating Krasnozavodsk, the tornado tore through the landscape 30 miles outside of Russia's capital.

Various self-published sources are reporting the damage and as you can clearly see in the photographs and videos below, the recorded results are catastrophic.

It's extremely rare that a tornado hits Russia, so seeing the remnants of this unusual location - dented Volgas, crushed Russian-style projects, ripped-apart birches - adds a particular eeriness to the already devastating scene. Official injury statistics are pending.
