There was some wild weather over the weekend in Yolo County as residents in the Woodland and Davis area experienced a tornado and hailstorm.
The twister occurred Saturday around 6:40 p.m., right after the National Weather Service sent out an emergency tornado warning that included the message "take cover now."
Daniel Swain is a climate scientist at UCLA who attended UC Davis. He says people might be surprised to learn that California gets 10 to 12 tornadoes a year.
"Definitely an unusual event but not necessarily an unprecedented one," Swain said. "It was certainly a well-documented one. I think [it] resulted in some pretty incredible imagery."
The National Weather Service says the tornado was an EF-0, its lowest rating, and estimates winds topped out around 75 mph. No damage was found or reported.
The storm that spawned the tornado also brought a quick hitting hailstorm which left Highway 113 between Davis and Woodland looking like it was covered in snow.
