Tornado Takes Out a Lighting Rig in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico

Continuing my series of severe weather's effects on outdoor shows...

Mike Bettes posted on Facebook a tornado/waterspout approaching Mayaguez, Puerto Rico (on the island's western shore), and Tony Kambic posted this on the Stagecraft Mailing List, and as far as I can tell, it's the same storm, as it hits an apparently pretty poorly constructed lighting rig set up for the Central American and Caribbean Games.

In the US, the local National Weather Service office generally has to do a post-damage assesment to verify a tornado; that should be done by this office in San Juan.
