No, not the race, the tornado.
The American midwest ("Tornado Alley") gets the vast majority of the world's tornadoes, but it ain't 100%.
Here in the Pacific North West they're virtually unknown. But when I was in high school, one time a bowling alley in Vancouver was destroyed by a sudden high wind. It's long been conjectured that it was a tornado.

The Bureau of Meteorology seems to be spending a lot of time today saying "Yes, it was a tornado. Yes, they do happen in Australia."

Glad you're all right, Boss!

That was actually a bigger storm, but it didn't get as much attention as this week's event because most of the tornado's path was through open forest, rather than making a direct landing on a busy commercial district in the middle of the day.
