A weak tornado touched down to the southwest of the intersection
of Missouri Highway B and Huster Road causing minor damage to
trees in this area and traveled northeast to the small community
of South Shore where several single family homes experienced minor
damage, while outbuildings or sheds were destroyed. Damage to
structures and trees were consistent with wind speeds of 80 mph.
The tornado moved northeast and intersected a line of parked
campers and boats along Dwyer Club Road. At least half of a dozen
boats and campers were tossed to the northeast and destroyed by
the tornado. Several trees in this area were uprooted, mainly due
to the very wet soil. The damage path was 100 yards wide at this
location. The tornado then hit an outbuilding on Dwyer Road,
lifting most of the roof panels to the northeast. The tornado
passed just to the west of Yacht Club Harbor with only a few tree
limbs broken in this area. The Lake Center Marina did not fair so
well, with two boat docks lifted and twisted into the trees on the
south end of the property. The tornado lifted shortly thereafter
with no visibile tree damage to the north of this location.
