Episode Narrative Strong southerly winds developed ahead of a cold front and caused low level shear to increase across the area. This low level shear aided in the development of several tornadoes across the area.
Event Narrative A tornado first touched down west of County Road 15 just south of Sleepy Hollow Lane. Tree and roof damage was observed in this area. The tornado moved northeast crossing State Highway 17 near Jordan. This is where most of the damage from the tornado was found. Numerous homes had roof damage and with several trees down. A well constructed horse stable was damaged and several valuable horses were injured with one killed. The tornado continued northeast for several miles over open land crossing County Road 31 south of CC Trail Road. Mostly tree damage occurred in this area. The tornado dissipated near CC Trail Road.
