A likely tornado damaged a dozen homes late Wednesday near Sacramento, officials said.

The damage was reported in Roseville during a strong storm. The damage was described as moderate, and no injuries were reported, according to the Sacramento Bee.

"That window sits on top of our couch. We would've been sitting on that couch watching TV when that would've happened. And there were some big chunks of glass that came down," Keith Kun told Fox 40 News. "Nobody was hurt. It's just stuff. Stuff can get fixed."

Another homeowner, Jason Bahlman, described what the storm was like for him.

"When the house started shaking, kinda ran into the inner closet. [It] lasted about 30 seconds," Bahlman said.

The National Weather Service said it will survey the damage and then attempt to confirm if the storm spawned a tornado.

Other funnel clouds were reported elsewhere in Northern California.
