Take cover right away, read the message that flashed across phones in Southern Ventura County and Northwestern Malibu.

Local “radar indicated rotation” and “this dangerous storm will be near…Western Malibu at 825 PM PDT. Newbury Park around 830 PM PDT” were both included in the alert.
As a precaution, the warning instructed locals to “TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY! Go to the lowest floor of a sturdy building’s internal chamber or the basement. Skip the windows. If you are outside, in a mobile home, or in a car, get under the nearest strong shelter as soon as possible to shield yourself from flying objects.

The extremely rare tornado warning for the Los Angeles area is only the most recent in a recent spate of bizarre weather-related headlines. The NWS issued warnings to locals for waterspouts, hail, and “landspouts” in the hours prior to the tornado watch.
The wind gusts near Six Flags Magic Mountain earlier in the day reached 102 mph, which is equivalent to a Cat. 2 Hurricane. Unusual snow fell in the area a few weeks ago, with flurries visible at extremely low elevations and even a coating at Disneyland.
Another factor is the practically continual stream of storms that have swept over the area during the past three months, delivering about twice as much rain there as usual.
