It’s been a year and a half, but today it was time for another tornado in the FOX12 viewing area.  This time it was in downtown Longview!  Multiple videos we’ve been showing on-air and those you’ve probably seen on social media.  We’ll find out this evening what EF rating it will get; the NWS is up there right now doing a storm survey.  From the damage it appears to be similar to what hit Aumsville in December 2010, maybe a little weaker.  Here are the last 3 tornadoes we’ve seen in our area
