The storm system dubbed a “Pineapple Express” swept through California Friday, triggering a tornado that tore off rooftops and felled trees in southern Los Angeles. The severe weather also brought rain that unleashed mudslides and prompted river rescues, and winds that knocked out power.
The National Weather Service confirmed that a small EF0 tornado — the smallest type of tornado with winds reaching 65 to 85 mph — touched down at about 9:20 a.m. Friday. The twister knocked down trees, blew out windows, damaged an apartment complex’s roof and the roofs of two homes and a steel billboard, NBC Los Angeles reported.
