Yep. Real tornadoes. That Melbourne.
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a real-life tornado warning for the Melbourne area. We called and double-checked: it's real.
A severe thunderstorm packing massive winds, heavy rainfall and hailstones — as well as tornadoes — was issued at 2pm today AEDT:
The Bureau of Meteorology warns that, at 1:50 pm, very dangerous thunderstorms were detected on weather radar near Bulla. These thunderstorms are moving towards the south. Very dangerous thunderstorms are forecast to affect Melbourne Airport, St Albans, Sydenham and Williamstown by 2:20 pm and northern Port Phillip Bay, waters off Brighton beach, waters off Pt Cook and waters off Sandringham by 2:50 pm.
The BOM is closely monitoring the situation, and the next warning is to be issued at 3:05pm AEDT.
Batten down the hatches, Victoria. You're in for a weird afternoon.

Update: Tornado has touched down according to a guy who might be trolling.
