OROVILLE (CBS13) – The National Weather Service has confirmed a third tornado touched down in Northern California earlier this week when a storm ripped through Glenn and Butte counties causing millions in damage.
The NWS team confirmed the tornado this afternoon saying it touched down outside of the town of Williams. They are calling it an EF1 tornado with estimated winds speeds between 86 and 110 miles per hour.
Tornadoes Cause Millions In NorCal Crop Damage
They already confirmed two F1 tornadoes in Glenn and Butte counties.
The twisters hit Butte and Glenn counties on Wednesday. Colleen Cecil with the Butte County Farm Bureau tells the Record Searchlight of Redding that almond orchards south of Chico were affected.
She said insurance will likely cover this year’s lost crops, but farmers will have to cover the cost of removing destroyed trees and planting new ones.
The tornadoes were also blamed for downed power lines, fallen trees and damage to barns and garages. There were no reports of injuries.
