Tornado touches down in Montebello, Southern California

On Wednesday, a tornado touched down in Montebello, Southern California causing damage to the area.

The National Weather Service took some time to confirm the tornado due to the need to assess all the information, including video footage from witnesses and radar readings.

The tornado was confirmed based on the visible funnel cloud, debris circulation, and radar signature.

Tornadoes are not uncommon in Southern California, but they are usually weaker EF 0 or EF 1 tornadoes.

The region’s geography, with its curved coastline and mountains, can create instability and lift in the atmosphere, leading to the development of these storms.

The tornado in Montebello is estimated to be an EF 1 tornado, meaning winds of 86 to 110 miles per hour.

Thankfully, there have been no reports of significant injuries.

The weather is expected to improve, but there is still a chance of isolated thunderstorms and scattered showers.

Temperatures are also expected to remain on the chilly side.

This event serves as a reminder to residents of Southern California to remain vigilant and be prepared for severe weather conditions.
