Smokey the Bare: Here's a fascinating read about a tornadic event in the Sacramento Valley from 25 years ago (be warned... it's a very DRY read). I was a forecaster at Beale AFB for almost 5 years, and just about every spring out there we would see a couple of thunderstorms in the Sacramento Valley that would produce a tornado or two. The frequency and strength of the tornadoes is far less than what is seen in the Midwest and Deep South, however it is also far greater than what is seen pretty much anywhere else on the West Coast.

/I miss California


Hah, I remember that event. Thanks for the read. I was telling my family out there that the tornadoes in Roseville last week were different than the ones they usually get out there in that they seemed to be mesocyclone-induced rather than the typical cold-core funnels they usually get and how extremely rare that is.

Shadow Blasko: In regards to Earthquake v/s tornado smack talk... Is this where those of us in the midwest say something like:

"Pshh. It's only an EF2. I don't even put shoes on for anything less than an EF4!"

/Stay safe folks.


I felt a 4.3 earthquake just before 2am this morning in north-central Oklahoma.  Is this where the Californians say something like:

"What?  That's only a 4.3. I don't even get out of bed for anything less than 6!"

I'm pretty used to seeing those this time of year in Alabama. I'm kind of surprised to see California hit with a warning.

Shadow Blasko: Somacandra: proton: Unless you live in a town with a name that resembles a funny body part, not farkworthy.

Mulva?

So when the next tornado threatens to blow on Big Bone Lick park on Beaver Rd in Sugar Tit, Kentucky I can get a greenlight and at least 2 repeats out of it?


On I-75 in Troy, Michigan:

If California had a tornado alley it would run the northern half of the Sacramento Valley from about Yuba City to Red Bluff. Tornadoes are not a common occurrence but are not unheard of there either.

It is if your state is a complete pantywaist.
