Tornadoes reported near Chico

The Associated Press

CHICO, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say at least three tornadoes have been reported in a rural area outside of Chico.

After the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning Wednesday evening for the area, a California Highway Patrol spokesman says three twisters hit a sparsely populated area of dairy land south of Chico.

The CHP says no significant damage has been reported, though there were four minor accidents in the area.

The National Weather Service says around 6:41 p.m. Wednesday radar showed the a storm associated with at least one tornado about 13 miles south of Chico, or about 90 miles north of Sacramento. The storm system is expected to move east through Glenn and Butte counties.

Video shot from KCRA-TV’s helicopter showed a twister forming and touching down near Durham, a tiny community about five miles south of Chico.
