Tornado Strikes: Butte County Faces Structural and Tree Damage

During a winter storm that occurred on Tuesday, meteorologists found that a brief tornado touched down near Oroville. This information was provided by the National Weather Service by meteorologists.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), the EF-1 tornado that struck the region at approximately 5:40 p.m. was the cause of the damage to trees and structures.

The line of thunderstorms that occurred over Oroville and Butte County was the precursor to the tornado that occurred.

The National Weather Service say a brief tornado touched down in Oroville during a winter storm on Tuesday:

When the tornado made landfall close to the intersection of La Palma Drive and Table Mountain Boulevard, it caused damage to a number of carports and shingles on roofs.

Additionally, it uprooted a great number of trees and caused tree limbs to break off them.

Before lifting, the EF-1 tornado was also responsible for the overturning of a free-standing light post. According to the National Weather Service, there were no reports of injuries or fatalities.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), the tornado had a path width of ninety yards, a maximum wind speed of ninety miles per hour, and an approximate length of 0.4 miles.

Here’s some news that’ll grab your attention for sure:

It wasn’t until after the tornado had passed that the National Weather Service received reports of damage.

Due to the fact that brief tornadoes are more difficult to detect on radar in comparison to massive and deadly tornadoes, the National Weather Service did not issue a tornado warning before to the storm that occurred on Tuesday.

Radar picked up on intense thunderstorms that were accompanied by gusty winds, hail that was the size of a pea, and heavy rain at the time of the EF-1 tornado.
