We had an extended power outage yesterday from about 4pm to around 9:30pm. A real sudden thunderstorm blew in with rain, sleet, hail and huge wind gusts, at least 60 mph or better. Turns out the outage was cause by a small cat 1 tornado that took out a really big tree and dropped on the power line, moved down the valley not far from us and damaged a barn and some fences. There was trash on the road for half a kilometer. I have never heard of a twister of any size in this area before and if it really was one it is a first.
