Tornado-Like System Hit North Las Vegas
Weather

Strong winds tore the tiles off roofs, uprooted trees, damaged cars and caused a power outage in North Las Vegas Tuesday night.

The tornado-type system known as down burst winds hit a neighborhood near Simmons Street and Ann Road just after 11 p.m.

One group of North Las Vegas firefighters were in their fire station when the system hit, tearing tiles off the roof. The firefighters said it sounded like a train was on the roof.

No one was hurt in the system. The total cost of the damage is not known.
