UPDATE: On 8 July, I received an E-mail from a DWD (Deutscher Wetterdienst) representative confirming a tornado in the Schöneberg-Kübel area. This event happened immediately before this video was shot. And so while the phenomenon in this video isn't officially confirmed, I can say that there was tornado activity immediately preceding this video. The rotation seen here may be part of the same rotation that caused damage in Schöneberg-Kübel. Tornadoes do indeed "skip" along their path, especially in hilly areas. This video may depict that same event.

6 July 2014 Approx. 8:20PM. This tornado formed northeast of Elschbach, by Dietschweiler village, perhaps 6 miles from Ramstein AFB. I'm not sure at this time how far it ultimately went. The tornado on the ground is at the end of the video. I would have captured more, but I have a co-worker that lives out in that direction, and I had to put down the camera in order to warn him.

After the fact, I drove out to Dietschweiler, and saw some one down tree, lots of vegetation debris, but no serious damage, fortunately.

Update: Damage to houses in Schonenberg reported. This tornado formed after the system moved past Schonenberg, so possibly more tornadoes were formed before this one.
