What's being described as a mini tornado struck the Los Angeles area this morning.
So far no injuries have been reported.

The driver was apparently trying to cross a bridge near Tenth and Grayson streets in Northwest Roanoke when the vehicle stalled.
Police and firefighters safely rescued the driver and passengers.
