Tornado warnings were issued in Multnomah and Clark counties

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Sunday evening turned stormy with heavy rain, hail and tornado warnings in the metro area.

The first tornado warning was issued for Multnomah County after the first funnel cloud was reported over Rock Creek approaching the west hills at 6:45 p.m. Sunday.

Officials still need to confirm whether that was a tornado.

The National Weather Service will send a survey team out to Old Cornelius Road in the morning to survey damage from the first warned cell in at the Plumper Pumpkin Patch.

The warning expired at 7 p.m. and officials said the storm weakened and doesn’t look like it could produce a tornado.

Following shortly after, thunderstorms continued to dump heavy amounts of rain over Vancouver, spawning a flood advisory. I-5 looked more like a rushing stream.

Then a funnel cloud was reported over Minnehaha at 7:35 p.m., and a storm spotter thinks he saw it touch down. This led to a tornado warning for south central Clark County from 8 to 8:15 p.m. The National Weather Service will need to confirm that it did touch down.
