DALLAS, Ore. -- The National Weather Service is looking into reports of a possible tornado in Polk County.
A barn was destroyed but no one was injured, according to witnesses.
Polk County Emergency Management received several calls from people who said they saw what looked like a twister southeast of Dallas, Ore.
The NWS investigated and told KGW they believe it was most likely a micro burst, which is not as powerful as a tornado but can still pack quite a punch.
KGW viewer Amanda Soto said she drove through what seemed like the beginning stages of a tornado as she headed into Dallas around 8:15 a.m.
I saw out of my front windshield a huge cluster of leaves about 30 to 40 feet in the air. I wasn't sure what it was at first, looked like it could have been a bunch of birds, she said. All of a sudden as I came under them, they very quickly and suddenly moved to the left and started to swirl around me.
She said it was powerful enough to move her car around.
