Tornado-like storm tears shingles off roofs in Goleta

An apparent tornado in Goleta this morning tore shingles off roofs, uprooted a tree, knocked over a basketball hoop and slammed down a fence, authorities said. No injuries were reported.

David Sadecki, a spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, said "a destructive path" was visible in the neighborhood after the 10:30 a.m. event.

I live in Santa Barbara and have to find out these things through the l.a.times. No word about it up here? Strange?

Well, you need to read the S.B. paper then. They have pics, stories, videos of the tornado.
