2 small tornadoes hit Los Angeles County, pushing California to its average annual tornado count

CNN —

Two small tornadoes briefly hit Los Angeles County, the National Weather Service there said, pushing California to its average annual tornado count.

The first touched down Thursday at 8:45 a.m. in Carson and lasted a minute, with estimated peak winds of 75 mph, the agency said. Minor damage to vehicles, trees and buildings – with small sections of roofing torn off – was reported.

Know the difference between a tornado watch, a tornado warning and a tornado emergency

About 10 minutes later, a second tornado touched down about 9 miles to the north in Compton and lasted four minutes, with peak winds estimated at about 65 mph, the weather service said. Downed power lines and small tree limbs, tarps torn from a nursery and minor roof and siding damage were reported.

No injuries were reported, CNN affiliate KABC reported.

Both tornadoes were rated EF0s, the weather service said. Those are the least destructive, with damage typically including broken tree branches, damaged road signs and small, shallow-rooted trees getting pushed over. The Enhanced Fujita, or EF, Scale rates tornadoes from 0 to 5 by assessing damage to estimate wind speed.

On average California sees around nine tornadoes a year, Storm Prediction Center data shows – and Thursday’s tornadoes brought this year’s count in the state to nine. The United States averages over 1,200 tornadoes every year, with the most in Texas and Kansas.

When the tornado hit Thursday in Compton, Ernie Abundis had been working on the roof of a Target store, he told KABC.

“I felt the wind, and it was one of those situations where it was too quick to react, and I braced for impact,” he said. “Being a SoCal resident, I didn’t even want to call it a tornado right away. I was like, ‘No way this is happening,’ it actually ended up being one.”

CNN’s Robert Shackelford contributed to this report.

Stolen mail and physical assaults: Postal workers in Compton decry violence on the job

Bee Lee did not recognize the man who followed him as he delivered mail in Compton earlier this year.

Lee, a longtime letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, was wary but “had a job to do” and kept walking his route.

When Lee stopped to get a drink from his truck, the man punched him in the jaw — so hard that he blacked out — and ran away.

Lee, 62, of Torrance, has struggled with his memory since the March assault, saying his brain feels “like it’s shut down.” He retired — earlier than he wanted to — after three decades of carrying mail for the Postal Service.

Violent attacks, such as the one that cut Lee’s career short, have become more common in Southern California and beyond since the start of the pandemic, according to the National Assn. of Letter Carriers, the union representing Postal Service carriers.

Dozens of postal workers this week rallied outside a Compton post office on Santa Fe Avenue, decrying the robberies, assaults and intimidation they face on the job.

The signs they carried read: “Enough is Enough — Protect Our Letter Carriers.”

Brian Renfroe, president of the postal workers’ union, said the violence is perplexing because letter carriers have been able to walk down “the meanest streets of the country without a problem” for the nearly 250 years since the Postal Service formed.

“Nobody messed with us,” Renfroe said. “Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.”

Since 2020, there have been more than 2,000 violent attacks on letter carriers represented by the NALC, which has more than 30,000 members in California, union leaders said this week.

In the first eight months of 2023, there were 20 robberies involving letter carriers in Lakewood alone, said Eli Torres, an NALC branch vice president.

Natashi Garvins, a USPS spokeswoman, said the Postal Service and its law enforcement arm, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, recognize the increasingly challenging environment and have partnered with local and federal authorities to protect the carriers and the mail they are delivering.

“We will continue to adapt to evolving security threats and implement expanded measures to safeguard our employees and preserve the security of the mail that our customers expect and deserve,” Garvins said.

“We have been — and will continue to — implement an engaged, robust nationwide initiative to harden blue collection boxes, enhance collection box key and lock technology and institute dual authentication for change of address protocols.”

Union leaders say recent attacks in Compton have been among the most violent in California.

Last year, a Compton letter carrier was pistol-whipped in the head while making a delivery.

And in September, another Compton carrier — a colleague of Lee’s — had a gun pulled on him while delivering mail.

That carrier, who wished to remain anonymous out of fear for his safety on his route, had just dropped off some mail at a residence when a man started yelling at him and cussing him out.

The resident was furious that the mail banged during a delivery, the letter carrier said.

The carrier said he did not report the verbal assault to his bosses because he worried residents would know it was him who snitched. He returned to the street two days later — and the resident who had yelled aimed a gun at his face.

“I’m thinking, ‘Dude, this is it for me,’” he told The Times.

The carrier still walks his route, but he avoids the man’s street, he said.

“This problem is growing,” Renfroe, the union president, said in a speech to workers at the Compton rally this week. Targeted armed robberies, assaults and shootings, he said, have become “part of our job.”

Renfroe called for the federal government to help. An estimated 14% of crimes against letter carriers have been federally prosecuted and resulted in an arrest, he said.

“You know what that tells me?” he asked. “That 86% of the people that do this get away with it. That has to change.”

Keisha Lewis, a union representative who oversees carriers in Nevada, California, Hawaii and Guam, said she receives two to three emails every week about a letter carrier being robbed or attacked — something that was, until recently, unthinkable.

The most effective deterrent, she said, will always be customers speaking up and telling authorities when they see something.

Sharon Whitaker rolled up to the rally late — in her USPS truck, laying on the horn.

Whitaker, a 63-year-old letter carrier and union steward who grew up in Compton, said the job feels a lot more dangerous these days. She prays every day before taking off on her route.

“I ask God to bring me back home safe,” Whitaker said. “But every time a car comes down the street I’m ducking. Because you never know what will happen.”

Ever since a shooting last September near South Park in Compton that left two men dead and a woman injured, Whitaker won’t park her mail truck in the area while she walks her route.

Customers called the day after the shooting, warning her not to come out.

Whitaker said she has had her safety threatened numerous times during her nearly four decades working for the Postal Service.

While delivering mail in Compton early one morning in 1991, a gunfight broke out. Her shirt and shoes were grazed as she ran for safety to a nearby home, banging on the door until someone let her in.

“I was so afraid,” Whitaker told The Times. “So afraid.”

Once, a man put a gun to her head during a delivery at an automotive store near Rosecrans Avenue, she said. One of her customers rushed out to scare the man away.

Whitaker reported the incident, and her bosses told her she could head back to the post office if she did not want to finish the route that day.

“But I did [finish] because I knew customers were waiting on me,” she said. “I had their paychecks. I had all they needed to survive.”

Despite the scary incidents, Whitaker described her job as “the best in the world” — one that makes her long days well worth it.

Whitaker wakes up at 4 a.m. each day, caring for her 84-year-old mother and for her 30-year-old son, who has congestive heart failure and needs assistance. By 8 a.m., she’s out the door, headed first to McDonald’s for a caramel frappe and then to the post office.

She usually starts her route by noon.

Some customers have become like family — offering her iced drinks when it’s hot outside and homemade sweet potato pie around Thanksgiving.

Whitaker was inspired to become a postal worker by her older sister, Robin Baker, one of the first Black women to work at the post office in Lakewood.

Whitaker started in 1985, walking Route 6 on central Compton Boulevard. There was no automation back then, so Whitaker sometimes came to work around 5 or 6 a.m. to manually sort the mail.

Carrying cash from grandparents, paychecks, love letters, mail carriers used to be greeted like celebrities when walking down the street. Now, what they carry makes them a target for robbery — which saddens Whitaker.

“The world is getting worse,” she said.

Most of the people along her residential route are seniors, so she understands if they can’t physically step in if someone tries to harm her. But keeping an eye on the streets and on letter carriers goes a long way toward making the job safer, she said.

One customer who is “always looking out” for Whitaker is 93-year-old Veola Baker.

Baker, who has the same name as Whitaker’s grandmother, makes the letter carrier feel less scared and not so alone while she’s out there delivering mail.

As she was discussing the uptick in violence before the rally, Whitaker’s phone rang.

It was Baker calling to check on her.

LOS ANGELES – The National Weather Service confirmed two EF-0 tornadoes touched down Thursday morning in the Carson-Compton area of Los Angeles County.

The two tornadoes touched down within three miles and 10-15 minutes of each other as thunderstorms raced through Southern California.

The first twister touched down in Carson at 8:45 a.m., only lasting about a tenth of a mile over a minute with a width of just 15 yards.

'It's even more rare out along the Pacific Coast': NWS confirms 2 tornadoes hit L.A. County

NWS Los Angeles Meteorologist-In-Charge Dr. Ariel Cohen weighs in on the two confirmed EF-0 tornadoes that touched down in the Carson-Compton area of Los Angeles County on Thursday.

HOW ARE TORNADOES RATED? THE ENHANCED FUJITA SCALE EXPLAINED

Images from SkyFOX via FOX 11 Los Angeles showed a downed tree and at least two buildings damaged by the tornado, including some small sections of a roof removed. Some cars and trees were also found damage.

"It was a rumbling noise — I was really scared like my house was getting ready to blow up or something," said Lydia Williams who lives in the area. "It was really, really scary."

National Weather Service storm survey teams estimated the peak winds from the twister at 75 mph.

Second tornado strikes just 10 minutes later

Just 10 minutes after the Carson tornado dissipated, a second tornado touched down just 3 miles away in Compton.

This twister was also about 15 yards wide, producing a narrow path of damage including a downed power line, minor damage to a home's roof and siding, while tearing tarps from a nursery in its path.

Storm surveyors estimated the tornado lasted about 4 minutes over its 1-mile-long path with a peak wind speed of just 65 mph.

There were no injuries reported with either tornado.

It's the third tornado to strike the Los Angeles area just this year. One person was injured and several buildings suffered damage when an EF-1 tornado struck the Montebello area on March 23.

STRONGEST LOS ANGELES TORNADO in 40 YEARS DAMAGES SEVERAL BUILDINGS, INJURES 1

The EF-1 twister touched down in a Montebello warehouse district just after 11 a.m. and wreaked havoc over nearly a half-mile path for about 2 to 3 minutes before dissipating, according to the National Weather Service.

A man driving a pickup truck was chased by authorities in the Compton area before being cornered near a flood control channel at the Compton Creek, where the standoff continued for nearly five hours on Thursday.

The pursuit began when Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop and the driver refused to pull over.

The suspect successfully evaded a number of PIT maneuvers attempted by deputies, driving over center dividers and on the wrong side of the road as they continued the pursuit via Compton surface streets.

The chase led to Poplar Street and Wilmington Avenue, where the pickup came to a stop around 1 p.m. on Thursday a few feet from the wash, pinned in from behind by law enforcement vehicles.

Deputies fired multiple pepper balls into the cab of the pickup, breaking a portion of the rear window, but the driver refused to the exit the vehicle, in turn throwing one of the canisters out of the vehicle. A spike strip was laid down as the man in the truck attempted to drive in reverse into the LASD squad car parked behind.

After a few minutes, the man tried to back into the law enforcement vehicles, but could not get away, spinning the tires and sending up a plume of smoke into the air. The deputies tossed a gas container into the cab of that pickup, but the standoff continued.

At around 5:25 p.m., the suspect was finally taken into custody after attempting to flee from the area on foot after exiting his vehicle for the first time since the incident began. He was finally forced out of the truck when Special Enforcement Bureau agents approached the vehicle and inserted gas canister. He was apprehended without further incident.

Throughout both the pursuit and the standoff, the suspect could be seen inhaling something presumed to be nitrous oxide from a ballon sourced by a large tank inside of the truck.

During a press conference, LASD officials disclosed that as it stands, the suspect faces charges of driving under the influence and assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.

A person who claimed to be a family member of the suspect's spoke with KCAL News reporters at the scene, alleging that he had recently lost his mother in Mexico, and was very distraught.

5:24 PM / March 9, 2023

Suspect attempts to flee on foot, quickly apprehended by deputies

After nearly four and a half hours, the standoff finally came to an end at around 5:25 p.m., when the suspect attempted to flee from the vehicle on foot.

His attempted escape was prompted by LASD's Special Enforcement Bureau's attempt to utilize a chemical again to get him out of the vehicle.

He was quickly apprehended by pursuing deputies and taken into custody.

The Los Angeles Sheriff Department brought in two armored vehicles to help with the stand off happening in Compton.

The suspect continues to sit inside his truck and has been seen huffing different substances from a blue tank, possibly nitrous or helium. During the chase, the driver was repeatedly seen with a white balloon in his hand, inhaling from it. He apparently continued refilling the balloon with the blue tank as the chase went on.

Authorities have thrown in multiple pepper balls into the truck in attempts to get the man to come out.
