Tornadoes Reported Near Hildreth, Wilcox and Minden

Near Hildreth, a volunteer firefighter spotted a tornado.

"That tornado happened really fast. It happened out of formation that didn't look like it could spot a tornado that fast. It wasn't really a text book wall cloud that you see floating towards you but then it came out really fast. It came out of formation about 10,000 feet from the air and it was an interesting weather cloud," said Dean Kasper, a Hildreth firefighter.
