On Wednesday there were over 80 reports of tornadoes in the U.S. Most of the twisters occurred in the central plains (Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri) but at least 3 of those reports came from California! Weak tornadoes were spotted near Chico and Oroville Wednesday evening. Some damage occurred to trees, out buildings and a barn....thankfully no injuries were reported. A TV news helicopter even caught one of the tornadoes on camera as it happened near Ordbend.
