The National Weather Service issued two tornado warnings within hours of each other Tuesday.
The second tornado warning was issued by the National Weather Service targeting the South Bay. It expired at 3:15 p.m. PT. The cities involved were San Diego, National City, Lemon Grove, La Mesa, Imperial Beach, El Cajon, Coronado and Chula Vista.
A line of storms capaable of producing a tornado was crossing the county. The storms were forecasted to produce hail to near 1 inch in diameter, according to the NWS.
The safest place to be during a tornado is in a basement. If you don't have a basement, look for shelter on the lowest floor of the building in an interior hallway or a room like a closet.
Use blankets or pillows to cover your body and always stay away from windows.
If you're in a vehicle, get inside to shelter. If that's not possible, lie flat in the nearest ditch or other low spot and cover your head with your hands.
