Survey Summary:

A small tornado touched down in the backyard of a home about a
quarter mile west from the caution light on IN 60 and uprooted trees
and caused roof damage to home. The tornado moved along Muddy Fork
and snapped or uprooted numerous trees. Then the tornado crossed IN
60 where it was witnessed by people in the Buckboard Diner. Next,
the tornado removed the roof of the older building next to the cafe
and a garage behind the cafe. It threw its debris into a small
church and removed some of its roof. No other damage in the narrow
path was seen beyond this point.
