A small tornado, or very strong wind burst, touched down in the RV lot at Speedway Chevrolet in Monroe, Wash., around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 30, tipping over two trailers. No one was injured, but employees were left shaken.
According to a Monroe Monitor report, Speedway service adviser Stacie Beltran said she saw “a gray whirlwind. It was just rain and branches. It was just kind of smoky,” pointing to some fog on a hill visible from the RV center’s main office window. “It was just branches everywhere.”
Beltran stood at the front counter with other staff when the weather turned nasty. Surveillance video shows a relatively calm rain quickly become a burst of wind, a distinct swirling funnel moving through the lot.
