Description

This wall cloud formed over Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. It spawned a small tornado that destroyed some farm equipment about 15 miles from this spot. The wind blew so hard where we were that we were concerned that we would be blown into the nearby canal. Our car was pelted with gravel from the road. Hail also pelted the car. It was quite exciting.
