Security video shows car flipped over by wind in US tornado

Wind in one American town was so strong this weekend it flipped a car on to its roof.

The incident in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, was caught on security camera footage and released by police who said it was a “possible tornado”.

A Facebook post from Mount Laurel Police Department read: “A parked vehicle flipped over and additional damage to a roof and air conditioning unit was confirmed. Most importantly no one was hurt.”

It was later confirmed as a tornado by the National Weather Service, with estimated wind speeds of up to 70 MPH.
