It happened at about 1:00 PM today. I was able to get photos and a short video.  It blew down a small guard shack and trees at work.  I watched a few news reports on it and it looks like I had a better angle.  🙂

First we heard and saw a huge bolt of lightning and then the rain and winds came out of nowhere.  I know its small compared to tornadoes in the mainland but it was an experience for me.  It left as fast as it came and the skies were blue again and the wind was still.  Another Sports Hawaii First!
