RUTHERGLEN, Australia, March 21 (UPI) -- At least two tornadoes tore across Australia's south-eastern Victoria state, injuring several people and damaging a number of structures, officials said.
The twisters moved between Cobram and Yarrawonga in north-east Victoria Wednesday about 8 p.m., the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
Lachland Quick, of the State Emergency Service, said that there were several reports of injuries.
"I know there are quite a lot of holiday homes that are unoccupied and that may have assisted us with fewer injuries," Quick said. "But certainly at his stage it's very busy up there and we are issuing further volunteer units up there at the moment."
