Episode Narrative Isolated supercells shifted east of the Lake Erie region and produced two tornadoes in Warren County during the late evening. Both tornadoes occurred in the northern half of the county and were relatively small/short-lived and weak. The first (EF0) tornado was embedded within a larger area of straight-line thunderstorm wind damage, while the second, more significant (EF1) tornado had a longer track and caused more damage. Official NWS storm surveys were conducted in conjunction with Warren County Emergency Management.
Event Narrative A survey team comprised of NWS meteorologists and Warren County Emergency Management officials determined a weak EF0 tornado occurred during the late evening of May 28th. The tornado first touched down in northwest Brokenstraw township on Murray Hill Road. The tornado touched down and lifted several times...finally lifting just east of Brown Hill Road in Sugar Grove Township. The estimated maximum winds were 80 mph along the sporadic path. The EF0 tornado moved northeast along a 2 3/4 mile path for about 4 minutes. The tornado was embedded within a larger area of straight-line winds. A total of about 400 trees were knocked down or uprooted. Four homes and a church sustained minor structural damage. Two outbuildings also sustained significant damage. There were no injuries or fatalities.
