Thanet Finder Adds Image Search

Thanet Finder, Thanet's first and only dedicated search engine, has been updated to include image search.

Thanet Finder was started as a community project in 2008. Since then the core group of maintainers (which often includes Thanet Star's Matt B) have been working hard to keep us connected to everything related to Thanet.

Thanet Finder leverages the power of Google and recently the search giant has released tools that have allowed Thanet's search engine to return a dedicated Thanet image search.

The new search option is still very new but we are all hopeful that this will be an enhancement that will prove useful to people.

Take the newly improved Thanet Finder for a spin.

Did you fall for the local press "tornado" mistake?

These are not photographs of Tornadoes people.

The local media has finally noticed that Thanet experiences plenty of down-draft vortex winds but seems fixated on calling them tornadoes, which they very much are not.

The "Thanet Tornadoes" are actually fairly common funnel clouds.

This is not a tornado in Thanet

A funnel cloud can be caused by Squall Line Thunderstorms (commen in these parts) and any other highly differentiated cold fronts moving in. These cold fronts usually bring rain and are very common here in Thanet.

When funnel clouds form in conditions such as ours they lack the energy to last any real time and definitely lack the energy to transform into tornadoes.

Thanet gets a rough ride again

Thanet once more gets the short end of the comedy stick, this time from BuzzFeed. Was this a deserved ribbing or an unfair slating?

Is the Gazette too biased?

Is it just me or does the local press have a political agenda?

If there is one thing that you cannot accuse the Thanet Gazette of being it's unbiased. Take, for example, the ongoing news of candidates selected to stand for Thanet South. You could be forgiven for thinking that only the right have managed to stand anyone.
