Event Narrative A small tornado touched down on the north side of Bedford, taking down about a dozen trees and damaging the roofs of a couple of houses. Some of the needle and limb debris from the trees actually made a nice 10 foot circle in the snow next to one home. About 2 miles east of Bedford, a newly built oil change garage had the roof blown off and the bay doors buckled in by the winds. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a rotating column they described as a tornado that caused the damage to the garage. A gas station across the street also had slight damage to the canopy over the pumps.
