Episode Narrative A strong dry line or cold front moved rapidly east across the Mid-Mississippi and Lower Ohio Valleys during the midday hours. This feature trailed from a strong low pressure system that tracked from Kansas to Iowa. In advance of the front, numerous showers and thunderstorms developed. Several of these storms produced large hail, and there was a brief tornado.
Event Narrative This small tornado occurred in a neighborhood on the northwest side of Elkton. The roof was blown off a single wide mobile home. A metal roof was partially torn off a storage building. Half of the roof was blown off a site-built home. A chain link fence and a few trees were damaged. A pine tree was stripped of limbs. There was an eyewitness to the event. The tornado was rated an EF (Enhanced Fujita) 1 with peak winds of 88 MPH.
