Hi Corrado,
it should be in 2003 but, to be honest with you, since the picture was given to me by a friend I do not have the absolute 100 % certainty! ;)
Cheers,
Luca

During the mid june( 19 June 2014), it has shown that the rare tornado event occurred over Marmara Sea and moved the anotolian parts of Istanbul (Tuzla) together with large hails, resulted with damaging homes, downing trees and sending docked boats flying.Many boats on Tuzla's coast were capsized by the powerful winds. A boat, thrown by the tornado, could be seen laying in the yard of a summer house. ıt was observed that 50 kilograms of rain per square meter observed near the Tuzla at the automatic weather station in a short time(one hour).
Interesting point is that, this extreme events such as Tornado, are rarely observed in south part of Turkey,near the Mediterranean Basin. Video can be found;

The 2012 rainy season in Nigeria has been worse than earlier years, and heavy rains at the end of August and the beginning of September led to serious floods in most parts of the country.The Nigeria floods displace two million from their homes, and kill 363. It is so far the worst flooding in 50 years. It caused fears over food supplies as some farmers saw all their crops destroyed and also people were frightened after seeing crocodiles, snakes and even hippopotami inside flooded homes.

Dear friends,

Dear friends,
This is very interesting to learn various kinds of extreme events which are experienced by participants. Here I am shearing with you some hydro-meteorological extreme events in Bangladesh. Due to geographical location Bangladesh is affected by various kinds of hydro meteorological extreme events like flood, tornado, rainfall, cyclone and storm surges. Different types of floods like river flood, flash flood, rain-fed flood and coastal flood occur here. Almost every year it gets severe flood which causes severe damages to lives, agricultural crops, infrastructures, properties and livelihood of people. Some example of extreme severe flood occurred in Bangladesh are flood in 1988, 1998, 2004 and 2007. In 2010 devastating flash flood occurred in northeastern part of Bangladesh which caused severe damage on rice production.
Bangladesh is affected by the tropical cyclone which also causes severe damage to lives and infrastructure in coastal areas.
