Episode Narrative Thunderstorms gradually intensified along and ahead of a cold front from Arkansas into western Kentucky. The storms occurred in a moist and strongly sheared environment, resulting in a combination of line segments and supercells which evolved into a quasi-linear convective system. There were isolated tornadoes, along with a couple small swaths of damaging winds.
Event Narrative The tornado struck first at a mobile home park on U.S. Highway 62 on the south side of Greenville. One mobile home was overturned and destroyed. Three people were injured. Two of the injuries were slight. Another mobile home was blown off its foundation. A camper trailer was overturned. Several houses sustained shingle damage. Trees and limbs were blown down along the entire path. The average path width was 100 yards. Peak winds were estimated near 109 mph.
