A tornado has hit a small town in Oregon, north-west America, tearing off roofs and destroying buildings.

Trees were uprooted and power lines were also damaged, leaving thousands of people in the area without power in their homes.

Tornados are unusual in this part of America, but luckily, there've been no reports of anyone getting seriously injured.
