Very likely linear winds. Damage path observed goes from lieu-dit La Pommerie (Saint-André-Treize-Voies) to "Le Bordage Caillé" (La Guyonnière). Lenght about 13 km. Average width : 50 to 100 m, maxi width 200 to 300 m (data from Climat-Vendée). Despite the investigation work of CV, some elements make us think it maybe a tornado, or else the two types of event should have occurred together... ? SOURCE : Climat-Vendée
