Episode Narrative Lingering moisture combined with the cold air left behind a front that moved across the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday to produce a damaging thunderstorm on Saturday.
Event Narrative A low topped super cell produced an EF0 tornado near Brentwood. The tornado crossed power lines and destroyed a utility pole (DI24, DOD4). An eyewitness described the tornado as high winds from swirling white cloud. The pole was twisted to the ground and the top one-third of the 40-foot pole was splintered. Fifty-five customers lost power at 12:54 p.m. PST.
