Tornado In Southern California!
No, this is NO bull****. This is what happened to me today at work.
About 2:30 came around, and this guy from CSI was at work. Outside parked his Ferrari, he bought Gran Turismo 4 and a bunch of other things, we talked for a bit and he headed out. When he left I noticed it was kinda windy so I watched outside. He was putting things away in his car, and the wind started to get a little worse. Then some people from Claim Jumper came out and started pointing, I thought they were pointing at the CSI guy..
Suddenly the wind got very violent, the CSI guy shoved everything into his car quickly and a gush of wind knocked over our garbage cans outside, then we heard banging up on the roof, and it got louder, suddenly the power went out. Everyone inside frooze. It was like they were waiting for an explosion, a scream, glass shattering, anything to break the silence. Then the wind was gone.
People started to leave the building, I stood at the door watching that nobody ran out with a DVD player or something. There was debry everywhere, and the power flickered back on a minute later. The manager announcing we had a tornado hit our store, freaked everyone out and everyone left the store. We looked around, the top left corner siding was ripped off the wall. It was dragged and pulled across the top of the roof, causing most of the damage and noise we heard. Around the building, a tree was pulled from it's roots and almost hit a parked car. Some people were stunned, some people were shocked in terror, and I was laughing.
Some of the patio furniture from the Wood Ranch place flew the umberllas all over the place. We didn't talk to anyone who "saw" this tornado, but you can't say a sudden gush of wind did this. People did see something though, they were pointing and some were freaking out.
