Rare Tornado Strikes Southern California


www.foxnews.com

MORENO VALLEY, Calif. — The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for parts of Southern California as the region is being pounded by wild weather including torrential downpours.

The weather service said at 4:38 p.m. Thursday that Doppler radar was tracking a tornado moving south near Moreno Valley in Riverside County.

Okay...this is weird. We here in California have been dealing with a pretty bad heat wave (I can't stand the heat)...typical for us at this time of year. But today it rains in Los Angeles and we get a tornado in Riverside...about 45 minutes from me!!!!



I really would like to think HAARP on this one but am sure that there are more natural explanations....will post more as I research (will be busy with work for the next few days)

It's getting stranger and stranger. And I thought the recent Colorado & Wyoming twister was strange (we rarely here about tornadoes in Colorado, but we never hear about them near LA).

Quote from the CO article:

"It's very unusual to see this by a mountain range. It's kind of a freak thing," Fleming said.


Seems like there's been a lot of freaky things happening...

Ya, I'm in Texas, at training, wife in California, and she called and told me about it. Serously not normal for California. I lived in southern California for 15 years, and I only know of 1 funnel cloud...didn't touch...and that was during el Nino.
So now we have tornadoes in Georgia and California, disasters in Burma and China. Anyone know if any solar events happened prior? I think we will experience a lot worse in the years to come.

A wild weather system lashed Southern California on Thursday with fierce thunderstorms that unleashed mudslides in wildfire-scarred canyons, spawned at least one tornado and dusted communities with snow and hail.

An overturned tractor-trailer and toppled freight cars on nearby railroad tracks were spotted in a part of Riverside County where the National Weather Service tracked a tornado.

There are flash flood warnings and a lot of craziness.

Yeah..I know. I have lived in California my entire life and if someone told me we were going to experience a tornado, I would laughed at them. It just doesn't happen here.

So we have a ton of weird weather throughout California, an unexpected tornado in Colorado (a major one at that) and all sorts of other happenings around the globe. Don't forget the earthquake in England...

Can all of these events to be connected?

I lived in Kentucky for 23 years out of my 30, and I just couldn't believe it when my parents said they'd had an earthquake in the area. I'd always known about the New Madrid faultline, but I thought the chances of activity in my lifetime were fairly slim.

Also don't forget the recent volcano in Chile:


The five-day-old eruption is the first in at least 9,000 years for the volcano in southern Chile, according to volcanologists at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.

Yeah, a weird, wacky, weather day in southwest SoCal. I posted a thread about the T-storms around here earlier, then my brother called and told me about the tornado near Perris, Ca. Unheard of. I had told my brother last week that if the heat kept up the way it was, we would have T-storms in May. Didn't really believe it would happen, though. Especially the tornado.

There are still flash flood warnings on the EBS here, freeway closures during rush hour (you know its bad when they shut down the freeway during rush hour), heavy rain and considerable wind. I don't see there being any more tornados today as it has cooled off and the storm is losing strength. But hey, I didn't think we would see T-storms in May, either.

Of course everyone around the Inland Empire that's lived here a while kind of expected this weather. We have the Orange Show in San Bernardino every year. It's a big fair downtown at the fairgrounds. They say there's an Indian curse on the show because it's built on top of ancient Indian burial grounds. Seems like an urban legend, but with the weather we had today I can't help but believe in it. I drove by the Orange Show and it had completely closed down because of the downpour of hail (which I got stuck in). The first day of the show was today, and it's all too much to be a coincidence. I just hope the rain lets up for this weekend, I have a wedding to attend on Sunday at the beach!

The first photo of the tornado looks very similar to the ones in "The Day After Tomorrow" that devastated Los Angeles, just not as dramatically thick and dark. I would so like to believe that this was a one-shot deal, yet I suspect it may only be the beginning of a disturbing new weather trend. Global Warming may be the culprit, but I don't think that it was the fault of mankind, even though our pollution may have helped it along the way.

OK, I'm giving too many personal opinions. It hurts me whenever I see any of my human family hurt, so I would love to really be wrong, somehow, on this one.

Tell you what guys , My folks in I were right in the middle of this one.
We were heading on the I215 south.

What they don't talk about in the news that this man made tornado started right in the middle of the field at March Air force base.

We were literally about 1/4 mile watching this thing knocking vehicles pick up a semi and a train.

I hate to bog down your thread with weather flukes, but these photos of the volcano in Chile are absolutely amazing. Not only was the event rare, but the eruption generated a giant electrical storm:







As clouds of toxic ash and dust tower into the sky, they ionise the air, generating an explosive electrical storm. Colossal forks of lightning spark around the noxious plume as it spews from the volcano's crater, creating an image of raw, terrifying energy - as if the air itself were ablaze.

Tornados, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and droughts are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. Then you've got new and weird variations on these events:

- Anomalous tornadoes (occurring well outside the most frequently hit areas).

- Earthquakes in rare areas.

- Earthquakes occurring at a shallow depth and in a grid-like formations in Nevada.
Discussion: www.abovetopsecret.com...

- Disasters overlapping (Burma storm, China earthquake)

- Weird rainbow patterned in clouds just before the China earthquake.
Discussion: www.abovetopsecret.com...

- Volcanoes and electrical storms coalescing.
Discussion: www.abovetopsecret.com...

- Well-known weather guru Tim Flannery wants to dim the skies with sulphur to offset climate change...
Discussion: www.abovetopsecret.com...

- The Large Hadron Collider is set to be fired up this month at CERN (if it hasn't been already).

...and that's just naming a few of what we're actually aware of.

You're not bogging down anything....the weather and geological phenomena does seem to be heightening...and the photos are awesome...

Besides, all singular circumstances have a relevance to any other news piece. It's not always an extreme connection, but all information is applicable....

Because of the interesting and seemingly non-sequitor nature of weather repots occurring..I think I will look into HAARP a bit more....I'll post what I think in a day or two...

You may want to check out the following thread. Anyone Noticing any Unusual Animal Activity. I'm sorry but i haven't figured out how to post links yet. There's been a lot of wierd stuff goin on with the animals lately all over the place. Seems like it may be a precurser to something big. They sense things that we can't.


I'm in Chicago and we sure weren't expecting that earthquake we got up here recently. Tornadoes are the norm up here, but not quakes. Seems like things are switchin around. Wonder if maybe they're right in what they're sayin about the poles ?


Somethings going on that's for sure.

Just passing through, goggling that tornado in Riverside (90 minutes from where I live) and noticed that certain - words amongst the blogging contributions are double underlined. Out of curiosity, I clicked on one, thinking the author had imbedded a link, only to find that someone else had, and seemed to be promoting a product. Is this part of this forum's attributes or would this be random spamming? Just wondering. It seems to occur with each blog entry, so maybe that's just the site's particular traits.

Either way, all of these pictures are awesome. I especially love the Chilian volcano/lightening storm! :0)

Oh, and the tornado one is pretty cool, too.

Anyway, that's all. I'll go crawl back under my rock. LOL

That friggin tornado in Colorado was huge too from what I hear.

My wife lived in Cali for like 14 years before she moved up here to Alaska. I told her about the tornado in Cali and she didn't believe me!

I guess most of You don't remember the Tornado that tore part of the roof off of the Convention Center, in Downtown L.A.. back in 1986! It also tore up parts of L.A elsewhere!

Un Freaking believeable!
My heart sank when I read this thread so far!
What is happening here?
Does this have anything to do with sunspot 24?
What if this is just the beginning of what we should be gearing up for as we head into 2012?
Wow just freaking Wow. This is a real heart pounder.

Edit footnote: A week and a half ago we had a Hurricane in Kansas City (Middle of the country)
If this is weather modification, do you think we really need to be creating controlled black holes next?
What if they are testing this all out to protect us in the future from some extremely huge event coming our way that they know about but are keeping quiet about?

I lived in Cali for four years and I do remember a freak hailstorm in Compton...

Hailstorm

That was really strange for Southern Cali.,. but a tornado??? wow...

I live in Charleston, SC and we have been having some bad weather lately... We had a huge hail storm that lasted for like 15 minutes just where I was at. it was crazy even the weather guy on the news was freaking out and at a loss for words.. he just kept saying this never happens here...and multiple tonadoes the week before... We typically dont get all of that next to the coast.... I am starting to believe something is up...
