Tornado Hits Eastern Idaho
If there is one thing I've taken for granted living in the Treasure Valley--it's the lack of natural disaster. In fact, living here for the majority of my life I hardly even THINK about natural disaster and have no idea what it feels like to have one coming my way.
Idaho did, however, experience a tornado today and that's not something we're used to hearing about. In a small town of Moreland, Idaho (located just between Idaho Falls and Pocatello) a small tornado touched down. There is no reported damage and it has been classified as an "EF-0", which in tornado talk, means it is the lightest classification causing winds of just 65-85 miles per hour.
The city of Moreland has only a population of 1,200 people. For a list of past tornadoes in Idaho (they aren't very common), click HERE.
