Oregon City Administrator Mike Beazley is reviewing why sirens were not sounded by the time a tornado tore through the city on Nov. 18, causing property damage.

“This was a very unusual storm traveling about 75 mph,” Beazley said at a council meeting on Nov. 25. “We had about six minutes from the time the National Weather Service sounded the alarm, and it was on us.”

The tornado was one of three that struck the area. The first twister started in Perrysburg at about 5:35 p.m., cut a 12 mile path into Oregon, where it ended at about 5:55 p.m. The width of the EF2 tornado was 150-200 yards and had an estimated maximum wind of between 120-125 mph.
