American in Spain

Tornado Takes Roof Off Spanish Restaurant

September 18, 2009

The video they can't stop showing on the Spanish news cycle today, besides the one where Obama thanks a member of the Spanish royal family for being in attendance when she was not (what's Spanish for faux pas?), is of a restaurant in Jávea, Alicante, where a tornado came by and took the roof off while customers were eating inside. Clearly Spain doesn't have the kind of tornadoes that the US does, because no one was sucked out and thrown miles away, but it's pretty darn scary enough as it is.

I wonder how many people claimed that the money for their meal was already on the table when the twister hit.
