Residents in a St. Petersburg suburb were shocked to witness the rare sight of a strong tornado.

The tornado turned the vehicle over a fence of a parking lot causing it to smash into the other cars. As a result of the incident, six cars and electrical power lines were damaged. No people were injured.
The violent wind was caused by a thunderstorm and lasted around five minutes.
Meteorologists say there is nothing supernatural about it, and such natural effects commonly emerge after a sharp change in temperature.
