[June 24] Powerful tornado hit nearby the National Training Center
A powerful tornado hit earlier this morning (like 2 a.m.) right nearby the National Olympic Center, where girls live these days.

Floarea and Munty last summer,
having a minute time off between their walk from gym hall to the hotel. As you may see, the whole area is crowded with old trees, ready to go down at first strong wind.
Girls are fine (maybe a little bit scared) and the hotel where they live is very strong, but if the tornado would hit during the day, when girls use to have walks in the park, something bad could happen. Earlier this week we had a report about girls being in a TV interview about their favorite soccer team-that interview was made on their favorite relax area in the park, filled with ready to fall trees.
Tens of very heavy 50 years old trees were down on the roads around the national Stadium, blocking the access all around. People who live in the blocks which surround the National Training Center have reported about a powerful sound, explosion-alike from the sky, followed by the 10-minutes tornado. This one took place only on a very limited area, right in a corner of a National Training Center.
Romanian tornados are something new, first small ones being recorder after 1990, only 5 major tornados hit the country past 15 years, 3 of them past six month. Strange enough, two of them were around the Golden Team-one in Deva like six month ago (see our Report) and the today one.
...30 minutes ago, a small to medium earhquaqe hit Bucharest (after the last week 5.2 Richter one). From same X-files alike events, past weeks strange lights and moving objects were reported on the Bucharest sky, some of them being filmed.
