The storms that came rumbling through our neck of the woods in WA and OR were nothing compared to the weather they got in Portland.

They had a confirmed tornado!

It was 40 yards wide at one point. Winds in the tornado were about 80 miles an hour (which is pretty weak as far as tornadoes go, but we'll take what we can get).

The twister cruised for about a mile after it touched down around 5:30 p.m. Monday.
