VIDEOS: Officials confirmed an EF-1 tornado ripped through northern Arizona, causing damage to homes on Monday afternoon. The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office says between 8-10 homes in the Junipine Estates community, eight miles north of Williams, were damaged. The National Weather Service reported winds in the area ranging between 86-110 miles per hour.
Trees were snapped and uprooted in the rural community, while parts of homes and sheds were littered across roads and yards. Residents say the tornado hit around 1:30 p.m. Among those with their homes damaged was Teresa Schmidt. She says her wooden shed was torn apart, half of her porch is gone, and her house shifted half a foot, causing cracks in the walls. Schmidt added one wall is leaning sideways, and beams are about to come through the ceiling.
