A potential tornado hit in the city of Montebello in Southern California, damaging buildings as the National Weather Service assesses the rare weather event

The possible tornado hit Wednesday in the city less than 10 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Several videos posted on Twitter and shared with local news stations showed what appeared to be pieces of roofs ripped off building and debris twisting in the sky, as some cars were moved around and damaged. 

Montebello city spokesman Alex Gillman said information was still being gathered about the extent of the damage and whether anyone was injured.

The city closed some streets “due to a weather-related incident.”
