A very strong and sudden wind storm, classified as a tornado, destroyed an area of 30km of forests in June 2008.

This picture shows the area after 2 years and 8 months. The new forest has already been planted but it will take many years to recover the same forest as it was before.

The catastrophe photographed a day after the tornado is documented here.

You can also see the track of the whole damage on the current Google maps.
