When nature gets brutal and when extreme weather happenings occur, we tend to remember how vulnerable we are through such disasters.
The following pictures were published in a closed facebook group “Limassol Memoirs” and are important documentations from the storm and tornado disaster which struck the city of Limassol, on Christmas Eve of 1969.
In these shocking photos cars had been turned upside down while covered with big stones, houses were partially or completely demolished, ceilings flew away (literally) and roads became torrents.
Years later, those images can’t go by unnoticeable. From one side the retro feeling while viewing them is absolutely charming thus on the other side they consist an important (and very raw) documentation of nature’s fury.
