Event Narrative A tornado first formed on the south side of Hillsboro where it caused a narrow path of sign and window damage at a car dealership and two gasoline stations, and blew metal sheeting into nearby trees at a home improvement store. It then destroyed barns one mile southeast of Irving and 2 miles south of Witt. The barn damage south of Witt was rated F1. The tornado then destroyed a metal shed 3 miles south of Nokomis and lofted the sheet metal up to a mile downstream. It also caused minor damage to a grain bin on a farm about three miles southeast of Nokomis. It then caused major damage to a machine shed three miles east of Nokomis where the sheet metal was blown one half mile downstream. The tornado then intensified to nearly 200 yards wide where it toppled and destroyed two high tension electric power line towers about 5 miles east of Nokomis. The damage was rated low end F2. The tornado then weakened and destroyed another grain bin and caused minor damage before dissipating near the Shelby County line.
