Thunderstorm, weak tornado lashes through the battlefield


Around 7.30 p.m. a thunderstorm swept through

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Monday night brought a vortex of thunderstorms into the Willamette Valley and through southwest Washington. Multiple downpours and heavy cells developed in the hills of Clark County, and heavy rain caused flooding in the cities around Portland.

One cell moved north through the battlefield, creating a weak tornado and later setting off a severe thunderstorm warning in areas of Yacolt.

The National Weather Service said “multiple videos and Doppler radar” showed the “weak tornado” moved across the battlefield for 10 minutes from 7:10 pm.

The National Weather Service in Portland has issued a flood warning for parts of the Portland Metro Area as heavy rain covered local roads.

All warnings and notices have expired or have been revoked.
