A rainstorm on Tuesday night was pulling down trees and knocking them onto the fence between Lithuania and Belarus.

CCTV footage captured by Lithuania's Border Guard Service (VSAT) shows tall pine trees falling down one after another unrooted by strong winds.

The service posted the video on Facebook, captioning it: “His majesty tornado is crossing the border without documents.”

Whirlwinds in Lithuania are called ‘viesulas’ and are similar to North American tornadoes, only much weaker.
