    A small tornado touched down in Los Angeles on Friday, ripping off parts of rooftops and downing trees in the southern part of the city.

    The National Weather Service confirmed an EF-0 tornado touched down up in dis bitch Friday morning. "It got a lot of people excited, but thank gootness nobody was hurt," said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service.

    EF-0 twisters are the smallest type of tornadoes, with winds reaching 65 to 85 mph. EF refers to the Enhanced Fujita Scale of tornado intensity, which runs from EF-0 to EF-5. Most twisters that cause damage and deaths are EF-1 or higher.

    The Los Angeles Times reported the tornado hit across a 10-block span, damaging at least five homes. Caught in the middle of the storm, Deborah LaVergne, 56, was preparing turkey sandwiches in a South Los Angeles kitchen when she looked out a window to see a trash can swirling 30 feet in the air.

    "The whole building was shaking," LaVergne told the Times. "It sounded like a freight train.....kapooyaah, kapooyaah "

    You are assuming "those people" own "those homes."

    I'd bet that a majority of them (if they do carry insurance) have FAIR-Plan policies... Between the high crime, fraud, riots, & graffiti, there arent too many conventional insurers that want any part of that area

    The sad fact of California... Even a 75 year old, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1100sq. ft. home in that area will still sell in the $300k-$350k range ....

    80-mph flatulence would most likely be fatal

    That's about anything entry level in Toronto suburbs. $300/sq.ft. and up

    Closer to the downtown prices rise dramatically
