The footage shows several funnels of fierce tornadoes, side by side, swirling above the ocean on Sunday afternoon.

One tornado hit the industrial district of Crotone destroying cars and damaging roofs.

Heavy rainfalls hit various regions over the weekend, prompting the Italian civil protection agency to publish a weather alert for Sunday in central and southern Italy.

The rain caused a large sinkhole to open up in a road in the village of San Felice Circeo, south of Rome, on Sunday, swallowing up a car.
