Dense trees are everywhere. Everything is green. A dark shadow covers the bottom of the forest. This is Smithston Forest, which covers a large portion of my region.
Right now, in this section of the Forest, a storm is going on. Winds blow harder than normal. Suddenly, a tornado comes down from the clouds!
Tornadoes were highly unusual, and this one was fierce.
The tornado went through the woods, literally ripping trees from their roots!
In the end, it finally ended, and a huge clearing had been made. The surrounding forest was littered as branches, leaves, and sometimes entire trees fell into them.
So, as my region populated, and a scenic highway was being built through the woods, the builders were in for a surprise.
Stay tuned for the next update, and what the clearing is used for!
NOTE: if anyone's asking, the smoke from the last picture is supposed to represent smoke from the construction.
