Severe weather hit McMinnville this evening. No casualties have been reported, but some buildings were damaged.

The National Weather Service has sent a crew out to McMinnville to determine what type of storm touched down. Andy Bryant is with the National Weather Service. He says no severe weather signs were noticed earlier.

We observed a cell of shower or thunderstorm that went through the McMinnville area around 4:35 p.m.,” Bryant said. “We didn’t see anything on the radar that would have indicated a tornado or funnel cloud.”

The National Weather Service reports that small tornados or funnel clouds do occur in the area.
