And according to the Utah Division of Air Quality, most counties across the Wasatch Front can expect moderate levels of particulate matter in the air.
They’re rare, but they happen!
The National Weather Service has confirmed that on Thursday, a tornado touched down twice in southern Davis County. Winds whipped up to 110 mph, causing tree and home damage in the Cloverdale neighborhood before the tornado moved into Woods Cross.
