A Mighty Wind
While I was paddling through the flooded Bodrum streets on Monday, a mini tornado whizzed between our village and the next, lifting up and scattering olive trees as it passed.
It's path was fortuitously narrow as it whipped across the valley like a giant chain saw leaving the trees next to the fallen ones completely untouched.
I was particularly saddened to see this garden affected as I remember the young olive trees being planted and they have lost 75% of them. Luckily the fruit trees were unharmed.
