A rare tornado touched down in Southern California Thursday and conditions were continuing Friday for the possibility of more forming during this week's powerful [winter] storm.
- According to ABC7, by tornado standards, the whirling blast of wind that touched down in a La Mirada neighborhood was [considered] a relatively weak one.
- Classified as a non-supercell tornado, or landspout, it knocked down a handful of trees.
- Experts say a landspout spins from the ground rather than dropping from a cloud and generally lasts a short time.
- There were no reports of serious injuries.
