  Wicked Storm Slams into Seaside Town in England

Clacton-on-Sea, U.K.: Residents scurried for shelter today in this coastal town as an angry storm swept over the area.

Clacton-on-Sea is a seaside resort on the Tendring Peninsula in Essex, England. According to the Met Office their radar and satellite weather equipment failed to detect the storm as it brewed over the English Channel.

Said one resident: "This tragedy makes me feel one with our friends in the United States who have been suffering similar fates. You cannot truly know what it is like until you have been in the midst of one of these monsters."

"It just came out of nowhere and caused tremendous destruction," said another resident, pointing to an upended plastic chair on her deck.

Apart from the overturned chair, other destruction caused by the storm includes Tesco shopping bags blown into trees, drowning of several cacti in the Clacton memorial gardens, and ruining of the expensive hairstyling of one of the noble uptown housewives.

"It was terribly frightening," said a pastor of a local church, "the storm was three hundred metres wide! A geezer in my parish measured it."
