May 25, 2013.

That will always be one of those days that people remember where they were when the tornado touched down in Victoria.

Luckily, the twister touched down in an isolated field. No damages or injuries were reported. But the funnel cloud-filled day will live in people's memories for a long time.

The rain came along with the storms, officially dumping 1.83 inches of the month's total 2.18 inches, a record for that day.

Interestingly the wind speeds on May 25 - 22 mph with gusts of 30 mph - were not even close to the highest for the month, according to the National Weather Service.
