Molino Tornado Caught On Camera

June 19, 2021

A local storm spotter caught an apparent tornado on camera this morning near Molino.

A tornado warning was in effect with radar confirming a strong rotation as the storm moved from Barrineau Park and across Highway 29 north of Highway 97 about 8:30 a.m.

Asa Schlobohm captured the images, and below has highlighted the rain-wrapped tornado since it is difficult to see.

There were no injuries or damage reported.

    “Does anyone know what category tornado it was? Just curious!”

    No, not a this time. The National Weather Services does on the ground surveys to determine that. They look at the damage in person to decide. With this one moving through mostly wooded areas, with no known damage to survey, so not sure that will even happen. It may not have touched down to the ground at all We may never know.

    I’ve worked in and around Molino. Last year, during a similar storm, I heard the awful rumbling of what sounded like a freight train. Lucky for me, it was a freight train.
