The question we've been asking all day may finally have an answer: Did Rome see a tornado this February? EyeWitness News Chief Meteorologist Rachael Witter has our answer.

According to Rachael it was just straight line winds and not a tornado.

Straight-line winds are common with the gust front of a thunderstorm or originate with a downburst from a thunderstorm. These events can cause considerable damage, even in the absence of a tornado. The winds can reach 130 km/h (80 mph) and can last for periods of twenty minutes."

So, yes we saw damage and crazy winds, but it was not a tornado.
