BASED ON A GROUND SURVEY OF THE DAMAGE AND RADAR DATA FROM THE
O`HARE TERMINAL DOPPLER RADAR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS
CONCLUDED THAT THE DAMAGE THAT OCCURRED EARLY TUESDAY AFTERNOON IN
SUMMIT WAS LIKELY THE RESULT OF A VERY BRIEF EF-0 TORNADO. THE
MAJORITY OF THE DAMAGE WAS TO TREES...WITH SEVERAL LARGE BRANCHES
DOWN AND A COUPLE OF WEAKER HARD WOOD TREES SNAPPED. THERE WAS ALSO
SOME MINOR ROOF DAMAGE AND A WOODEN FENCE PARTIALLY DOWNED.
