I took this video just moments after the rain started. The strong wind blew a piece of roofing off the Shilo Inn to the right of my computer repair business, Eric-Tech, in Salem. We've had some minor flooding in the parking lot and sustained winds somewhere (guessing) between 35 - 45 mph. I saw clouds that were dark enough and odd enough to house a tornado, but never saw any funnels myself. One blast of lightning has hit the ground somewhere near me (east) but I haven't heard what it hit yet. I'm on Market and Hawthorne in Salem.
