Tornado in Washington State

Geoff Boyle

Wow, it was a bit of a surprise today. I did chase, and I will post my report in the TA when my usergroup request is confirmed. If not in 48 hours, I will add more info to this thread.

I got this from the local news website:

Around 3:45 this afternoon the weather service issued a Tornado Warning for Yakima County after a tornado was spotted near Toppenish. No one was injured and there was no serious damage, but for about 30 minutes weather spotters watched the storm move to the northwest at about 15 mph.
Believe it or not, that is somewhat if an active place for tornadoes. Check tornado activity in WA State for last year. You will be surprised.
