‘Don’t Worry, There’s No Tornado Coming’, Broadsheet tells readers before tornado comes

Back in 1987, BBC weatherman Michael Fish revealed that a viewer had called in to ask if there was a hurricane on the way and confidently told British viewers: “Don’t worry – there isn’t.”

The ensuing hurricane instead turned out to be one of the devastating storms the country had seen, and Fish never lived it down.

Yesterday, hipster tipsheet Broadsheet joined the club, venturing into metereology to tell Facebook followers: “Don’t Worry, There’s No Tornado Coming.”

Minutes later, the 213kmh tornado duly arrived in Sydney.

As one Facebook follower suggested to Broadsheet, it might be best to pedal their fixies a bit further before making such a big call next time.
