Several power poles were broken along Burrville Road and debris from the area was thrown about half a mile, which broke more wood poles along Wourms Road. Surveyors saw the most significant tree damage along Wourms Road, with several hardwood trees snapped or knocked over. The damage was consistent with a low-end EF2 tornado, with wind speeds about 115 mph, the NWS said.
The tornado rapidly weakened as it moved southeast towards Fox Road and Meiring Road. The only damage surveyors found was minor damage to a small building and partial removal of a silo in the area.
No injuries or fatalities were reported in the tornado. The tornado reported traveled about 5.7 miles with a path about 200 yards wide, the NWS said.
The NWS worked with the Mercer County Emergency Management Agency and the Fort Recovery Fire Department to confirm the twister.
