A Tornado Landed in Mesa and Took a Hot Tub
The National Weather Service has confirmed that a "small tornado" touched down in Mesa over the weekend.
According to the NWS, the tornado took a hot tub about a mile west of downtown Mesa, and several people reported watching the hot tub spinning over an apartment complex before it landed upside down about a quarter-mile from where it was picked up.
"At least four observers reported seeing the hot tub aloft in the cloud . . . spinning over the apartment complex," an NWS statement says.
This happened a little before 1 p.m. on Saturday, between Alma School and Extension roads, and Main Street and University Drive.
