After thunderstorms rocked the north Valley Friday night, there was a tornado warning issued for an area seven miles south of Buckeye by the National Weather Service.
The storm south of Buckeye was moving east at 10 mph. The warning was issued for 6:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.
Buckeye had serious rain hitting the area before the tornado warning.
The warning follows a late afternoon filled with heavy rain, hail and wind in the north Valley area.

The thunderstorms mark one of the first storms of Arizona’s infamous “monsoon season” during the summer.
