... Two Washington tornadoes surveyed...
National Weather Service personnel conducted a survey of Franklin
County a few miles south of Washington Missouri today and found
damage resulting from two short track tornadoes.
The first tornado touched down along Country Club Road and
produced minor tree damage. It continued northeast and struck a
farm where it removed the majority of the roof from a large metal
pole barn. Another outbuilding sustained roof damage and the
residence had some shingles blown off. The damage to the pole barn
is rated EF1 intensity while the rest of the damage at this
location is EF0. The tornado crossed Country Club Road near a
sharp curve to the west. A house had shingles missing at this
location as well as minor tree damage. The tornado lifted just
past this point. The maximum intensity is rated EF1 with maximum
wind speeds near 90 mph. The path width was 100 yards and a path
length of three quarters of a mile.
A second weaker tornado formed near the intersection of Country
Club Road and Country Club Lane where it blew over a Road sign and
produced minor trim damage to a home. The tornado continued
northeast and passed through a new subdivision and produced minor
tree damage. The tornado lifted before reaching Highway 47. The
intensity of this tornado is rated EF0 with a path width of 50
yards and a path length of one half mile.
