Episode Narrative A high pressure centered over New England pushed a back door cold front into Southeast West Virginia. This front, combined with an upper level low pressure system moving through the region, triggered severe thunderstorms. Some of these storms produced large hail.
Event Narrative Microburst winds up to 75 MPH caused damage to many trees in the area. Roof damage to several homes also occurred, a few outbuildings were badly damaged, and a mobile home was rolled off its foundation. This damage began along Route 12 north of Ballard and continued southeast for about 3 miles crossing portions of Red Sulpher Springs Road.
