A tornado and an earthquake? An interesting day in the Northwest!

A tornado was reported earlier this afternoon in southeast Washington State. Quite the unusual event, to say the least, for that area. The twister was seen by numerous people but damage appears to be on the minimal side. It appears to have struck the north side of the city of Richland. The tornado occurred where you see that red dot in Washington.


Then, just about an hour ago a strong earthquake struck northern Idaho. The magnitude 6.5 quake has rattled homes and nerves. Thankfully, damage appears to be minimal, as it seems to have occurred in a rural part of Idaho. Still, many homes have some minor damage. The quake was felt as far away as Seattle!
