"Ajax" Funnel Knocks Down Trees, Pushes Down Items in San Pedro
The tornado appeared to begin near a home between Old Military Highway and Mary Lee Court, lifting a few old shingles before knocking down several large limbs in the front yard. The track continued across Old Military Highway, tipping over a water kiosk and tearing off numerous mesquite limbs before moving across Military Highway (Federal 281), where it blew down smaller mesquite trees before crossing a field and tipping over a trailer at a 45° angle onto a recreational vehicle. Damage continued into a tree stand before ending. Well built homes in the neighborhood sustained no damage; power lines remained up and power never went out as the storm raced by.
