Survey Summary:

This small tornado was embedded in a fast moving squall line that 
raced east at 55 mph.  The twister first touched down at a home on 
U.S. Highway 62 just west of Goshen Church Road, tearing off 
shingles and uprooting a tree.  It moved east-southeast, uprooting 
and snapping trees near the intersection of Hwy 62 and Goshen Church 
Rd, along with damaging some small outbuildings.  

It next downed a tree on Mine Fork Road that fell between a home and 
outbuilding, damaging both structures and causing a minor head 
injury to the occupant of the shed. Continuing over open fields, it 
next hit several residences along Hill, Mulberry, and South Mulberry 
streets before crossing U.S. Highway 231 and causing minor roof 
damage to the Post Office. 

The greatest damage occurred in this two block area, where up 
to a dozen outbuildings were destroyed or heavily damaged, and 
sections of roofing were lifted off homes and garages.  Fences 
in the neighborhood were blown in a cyclonic pattern, providing 
evidence of the tight rotation pattern of the storm.  After 
crossing Hwy 231, the tornado damaged several large warehouses, 
scattering wood and sheet metal debris.  Along Bruce School Road, 
a chain link fence was flattened, and insulation was sucked out 
of the damaged roof of a two story home, then spattered along 
the east side of the home and adjacent vehicles.  

Another large tree was uprooted in this yard before the tornado 
lifted.  Sheet metal and shingles were lifted into trees along 
the route of the storm.  The NWS thanks Ohio County EMA for 
assistance in this damage survey.
