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.”
NWS investigating possible tornado
The NWS said it is sending a survey team to Montebello to investigate the possible tornado, as well as the city of Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County, where another possible tornado hit Tuesday and caused damaged to several mobile homes.
“We will post any information about the possible tornado(es) over Carpinteria and/or Montebello as soon as we get them after our damage survey is complete,” the NWS Los Angeles said.
Possible tornados come during severe weather
The possible tornados occurred as the state is being hit with more rain and snow, as well as strong wind gusts in another storm meteorologists called a “bomb cyclone.”
Two people in state were killed Tuesday.
