Has there ever been a tornado in Oregon or Washington?

    There was a large outbreak of tornadoes in Washington in 1972 when 2 F3 tornadoes and 1 F2 tornado touched down on the same day. There were 6 deaths and 300 injuries reported. Another touched down in 2009 and about 64 structures received damage.

    A massive tornado moved through Oregon about 45 miles south of Portland in December of 2009. Luckily, no deaths were reported in this twister, although there was a large amount of damage to the small town of Aumsville.

    Tornadoes in both of these states are rare but absolutely do come up every once in a while.
