We had this last night in northern california. Weird weather for the entire west. We don't have cellars out here; mostly we stand on the back porch and look at the sky and hope nothing happens.

Hold on tight! (And take pictures if there's anything good.)

Thanks for that update! I know this is an everyday thing for you- but tornadoes or even warnings are rare here! For that I am very grateful!

Truth be known I think yer Portland NOAA guys never got to punch that button before and took it opportunity to do it.;) What I saw had potentual, but not much, doubt the guys in Valley Newbrassky would have hit it.

Gonna go back and look at the whole loup.
