A snowstorm in Northern California produced two tornados on Monday.

We’re they powder-tornados?! We sure hope so.

According to the National Weather Sevice:

“A winter storm brought active weather to NorCal yesterday and we saw two tornadoes over Tehama County. An EF-0 near Corning and another tornado in an open field near Vina.” —NOAA 1/5/21

California averages approximately 11 tornados a year
