The area of Northern California around Sacramento faced disturbing weather in recent times. There were four tornadoes that wrecked several residential regions. Also six funnel clouds were present complicating the atmosphere scenario. 

Between 12 and 20 homes got destroyed by the twisters and strong winds that howled around the loci of the Sunshine State. It was a miracle that no human lives were lost and that furthermore no one was injured. The odds and ends of rubble left behind by the devastation stretched out for 300 yards. 

The fact was that many of the people had acted in the nick of time. That they had taken shelter from the storm was a major reason why they remained unharmed by the dire winds and twisters. 

The torrential rains and savage winds that swept the region brought damage in their tow. And the whole ordeal remained in full force for approximately three hours. 

It was a most harrowing time for the residents who saw their homes receiving some very brutal treatment at the hands of Mother Nature. Hail also fell in tandem with the pelting rain drops and winds. 

California usually doesn’t have such an extreme weather situation. But a few tornadoes do wreak havoc in the region each year. And the only way of weathering (no pun intended) these forces of Nature was by remaining informed and acting on the guidelines handed out by authorities. 

Human life after all is a very precious thing and not to be wasted by sheer carelessness. The Boy Scouts’ Motto “Be Prepared” is very relevant here. When the weather gets out of hand it may spell a lot of trouble for settled and civilized life. 

"I left this 15 years ago in the Midwest, and here we are with damage to our house from a tornado," Roseville resident Mark Thompson told CBS Sacramento station KOVR-TV.

Meanwhile, the overall situation in California is expected to remain unsteady for awhile so residents of the region have been told to lay low.
