Summary

A EF-0 tornado touched down on the west side of Edgewood road and CR 65, a little south of the intersection with Coffman road.  Several trees were uprooted in this area with large branches from hardwood trees also snapped.  The tornado moved in an easterly direction crossing CR 26 and Old Elkmont road.   Minor and very sporadic tree damage was noted along the path.  The width narrowed to less than 50 yards as it moved further east and finally lifted near the intersection of highway 31 and interstate 65.  The last signs of any tornado damage was a few snapped and twisted tree limbs in this area.

These findings are preliminary and are subject to adjustment.
