A lot of Catching Up To Do! OHX Storm Surveys

Good day to all our blog readers. Even though I missed blogging Friday's event, I was keeping a close watch on it all day and was doing a lot of stormtracking. Of course, the Murfreesboro tornado was rated the highest (EF-3), but that is just an preliminary rating as it could very well be upgraded to EF-4 later on. Here's a list of other TN tornado ratings.

...EF1 TORNADO TOUCHDOWN CONFIRMED IN SUMNER COUNTY...

Location: 8 miles SW of Portland
Intensity: EF-1 (100 mph winds)
Damage: 3 FRAME HOMES AND A MOBILE HOME SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT ROOF DAMAGE ALONG CREEKMORE ROAD. NUMEROUS TREES WERE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED.

...NWS CONFIRMS EF-1 TORNADO DAMAGE IN BENTON COUNTY...

Location: 6-10.5 miles NE of Camden
Intensity: EF-1 (100 mph winds)
Damage: MUCH OF THE DAMAGE WAS ALONG AND NEAR GRAPEVINE AND HARMON DOCK ROADS. MANY HUNDREDS OF LARGE HARDWOOD TREES AND PINE TREES WERE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED ALONG THE DAMAGE PATH. TEN HOMES SUFFERED ROOF DAMAGE AND SEVERAL OUTBUILDINGS WERE DESTROYED.

...PRELIMINARY RESULTS FROM A SECOND TORNADO IN RUTHERFORD COUNTY...

Location: 8-10 miles SE of Murfressboro
Intensity: EF-1 (100 mph winds)
Damage: 4 HOMES WERE DAMAGED ALONG WITH A BARN...AND SEVERAL TREES WERE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED.

*I will have more on the first Murfressboro tornado once the report is done.
