Thats Crazy. <BR> <BR>We had one in Fountain Valley California in the 80's. <BR> <BR>It took the roof off the house behind our house and sent the roof over a 20ft plus wall and onto the freeway. <BR> <BR>It was crazy and I haven't heard of one in the So Cal area since.

I was about to post this. I was talking with a friend who just moved out there. Heads up out there today! stay safe.

Sounds like it touched down in Seal Beach and flipped a car over. It has now passed though, the rain and wind have subsided and it looks like the sun is coming out!

Looks like a winch spot to me...

Yep, sun's out here now, but wow that was pretty amazing a couple hours ago!

Batton down the hatches. The storm on Thursday and Friday could dump over twice as much rain.

rio_sanger 01-20-2010 1:20 PM

It's raining again today, and supposed to last into Friday. I know, great for the reservoirs, but I don't know how do you people up in the Northwest do it? Two days stuck in the house and I'm going nuts! <BR> <BR>...not to mention, way too much Wakeworld time <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>

I'm going crazy here stuck inside. I went down to the pier for a little fun and to see the mean swells. Surprised to see how many people had the same idea that I did. I guess it doesn't happen very often here so its a sight. I'll be happy when the sun comes back!!

my sister inlaws parents live about 1/2 mile from me. they lost their back fence today to a "microbursts". sounds like a tornado to me. a fruit stand that is about 5 blocks from my house lost it's roof. there is a reason I don't live in Kansas. this stuff sucks. gimme a good old 6.5 earthquake over a tornado please. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by ttrigo on January 21, 2010)

in the past you could choose: California for earthquakes, Texas for tornadoes <BR> <BR>now it seems that we each get a little of both...
