Peculiar Weather Event Blasts California Town With Hail, Tornado

The city of Davis and the surrounding area were hit by a series of oddball weather events on Saturday, September 28th, 2019 – right as the area hit the lowest record temperature for that day.

The Central Valley was experiencing thunderstorms in the early evening and quickly a massive funnel cloud was spotted…this eventually turned into a dicey situation as it became a tornado and touched down right next to a highway.

The National Weather Service of Sacramento had issued a tornado warning just moments before the twister touched down and advised people to find shelter.

Luckily, the tornado only caused a stir among residents – no damage has been reported.

Not too much later and Brennan Prill tweeted out a video showing a massive amount of hail covering State Highway 113 in Davis.

“Holy hail, Batman! It looked like it snowed in Davis, CA after the tornado warned storm dropped hail on State Highway 113,” he wrote.

You could see the cars driving ever so carefully through the mass amount of hail that literally was just dumped on the ground in the matter of a few minutes.

“California sees about 10 tornadoes a year, so this is rather rare for the area,” CNN Weather producer Robert Shackelford said. “They are more likely to see tornadoes in the winter and spring, but it isn’t uncommon to see tornadoes in the fall.”
