The National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
tornado from near Fairborn in Greene County Ohio to near Medway
in Clark County Ohio on 05/24/2017.

Based on additional photos and radar evidence, the beginning point
of this tornado has been adjusted farther to the southeast toward
Fairborn in Greene County Ohio. Some minor tree damage occurred in
Fairborn Park, just northwest of Fairborn and then some additional
minor tree damage was found along Osborn Road in extreme northwest
Greene County.

Tornado damage was also found along Lower Valley Pike near Princeton
Drive, just southwest of the Interstate 70 and route 235
interchange. The tornado then continued in a north-northwest path
along and either side of Princeton Drive. Several manufactured
homes sustained roof and siding damage, along with carports and
awnings destroyed. Several large trees were damaged, either
uprooted or with large branches snapped off. Two large trees fell
on and destroyed 2 homes on Cordova Drive.

Several homes along Wellington Avenue had mud splattered on the
north or east side of the homes, showing evidence of rotation.

The damage quickly lessened in strength further to the northwest
with minimal damage along Jason Drive and no evidence of damage by
Amy Dee Lane.
