A tornado in Manila

I couldn’t resist taking a look at this link to footage of a small tornado that struck Manila in the Philippines.

It’s not clear to me when the tornado hit, though I’m left with the impression that it’s within the past few days.

Tornadoes in the Philippines are not unheard of. Officials blamed extensive damage on May 16, 2008, on a tornado, and a Google search uncovered footage of a tornado that touched down in Manila in 2006.
