On October 21, 1638, a twister struck the tiny English hamlet of Widecombe-in-the Moor during a Sunday congregational, flinging attendees against the stone walls, killing 50.

Believers blamed the Devil for timing the tornado’s arrival during the morning church service.

Accounts from the day suggest that a rare form of lightning, called “ball lightning” may have accompanied the storm as a number of church goers suffered burns when a “fireball”, according to witnesses, was unleashed. How horrible!
