Reports indicate the twister left behind major damage as it moved from the water into an industrial area.

A worker is missing after a crane was blown into the sea when a tornado hit the ILVA steel plant in Taranto on Wednesday with winds causing a tower and a lightning bolt knocking down a chimney.

The company said two people had been taken to hospital and 20 people suffered minor injuries as a result of the damage caused by the weather.
