"The National Weather Service has issued tornado warnings for South Central Los Angeles County and Orange County as a severe thunderstorm moves ashore.
The warnings will continue until 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. They cover South Central Los Angeles County, including Long Beach, and several Orange County cities such as Anaheim, Irvine and Santa Ana.
The weather service says radar shows a thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado is moving northeast at 35 mph.
The weather service says if there is a whirlwind, anyone caught outside should seek shelter in a reinforced building or try to shelter in a culvert, ditch or a low spot.
I have never been in a Hurricane or Tornado, but at 1pm I felt that the eye of storm was right on top of me (Irvine, CA)
There was lighting, rain, winds up to 50MPH! it was insane. Got it on video too w/ my Blackberry.
I was also walking from class to class, but got soaked! and macbook luckily survived in its carrying case.
It kind of reminded me of "The Day After Tomorrow" where a tornado hits LA......well this is a first..
Who out there felt the tornado force winds?????? in Southern California.
