1 MILE WEST-NORTHWEST OF CENTER
TORNADO
THIS SQUALL-LINE TORNADO WAS ON THE GROUND FOR JUST OVER A QUARTER MILE, BUT CAUSED CONSIDERABLE DESTRUCTION. AT TOUCH DOWN, IT DESTROYED TWO LARGE BARNS AND A SMALL OUTBUILDING, IN ADDITION TO TAKING THE ROOF OFF A SMALL HOME. THE FRONT PORCH OF A NEARBY HOME WAS BRIEFLY RAISED, CAUSING THE SUPPORTS TO FALL OUT. THE TORNADO MOVED NORTHEAST, STREAMING DEBRIS FROM THE FOUR BUILDINGS IN A CYCLONIC PATTERN AND INTO A NEARBY AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR SHOP THAT HAD ONE DOOR BLOWN IN AND ANOTHER OUTWARD. THE LARGE METAL SHOP HAD MINOR ROOF DAMAGE, BUT WAS PIERCED IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS BY DEBRIS FROM THE OUTBUILDINGS TO THE WEST AND THE ENTIRE FACILITY WAS SHIFTED SLIGHTLY OFF ITS FOUNDATION. NUMEROUS VEHICLES NEAR THE REPAIR SHOP SUSTAINED DAMAGE WHEN HIT BY LARGE DEBRIS FROM THE BARNS TO THE SOUTHWEST. THE CAB OF A SMALL PICKUP WAS CRUSHED BY DEBRIS AND THE VEHICLE BLOWN ONTO HIGHWAY 969. AN RV PARKED NEXT TO THE SHOP WAS BLOWN INTO A UTILITY POLE. SEVERAL OTHER VEHICLES HAD WINDOWS BROKEN OUT. METAL ROOF PANELS FROM THE DESTROYED BUILDINGS, ALONG WITH INSULATION FROM THE SMALL HOME, WAS WRAPPED AROUND TREES AS FAR AS A HALF MILE FROM THEIR ORIGIN, WITH OTHER SMALL DEBRIS OBSERVED AS FAR AS 3/4 MILE FROM THE INITIAL TOUCHDOWN LOCATION.
