Arizona “Tornado” Update


Possible Funnel Cloud over Scottsdale, AZ

The crazy weather continues to wreak havoc on the West Coast.  The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning at 8:32pm (Local Time) for Maricopa County in Arizona. Scottsdale (just Northeast of Phoenix) was the city that was right in the storms path late Thursday night.  The NWS detected a severe thunderstorm that was capable of producing a tornado at 8:30pm while local Doppler radars indicated rotation within that same storm.
Residents who live near a local mall (Desert Ridge Market Place) experienced their windows shaking around 8:45pm.  This same (unconfirmed) tornado knocked down power poles on U.S. 95, blew over big-rigs on SR 78 and downed 3 trees at an apartment complex in Kierland.  Two tents at a local car dealership collapsed and were launched onto the 101 freeway when the storm pushed through.  No one was seriously injured, but several cars were damaged.  Local NBC meteorologist Sarah Walters said as of now the tornado touchdown is unconfirmed and is waiting for the NWS in Phoenix to do a storm damage evaluation. She did confirm a 57 mph straight-line wind in Chandler when the storm passed.
