SURVEY SUMMARY:

An EF-1 tornado touched down just inside the Coffee County line
west of Tullahoma. This tornado tracked through the northside of
Tullahoma crossing over State Route 16/Jackson Street damaging
several businesses with mostly roof damage observed. The tornado then
moved across the Lakewood Golf and Country Club and Lake Tullahoma
Estates neighborhoods where several hundred trees were uprooted
and snapped. Almost all of the structural damage in these
neighborhoods were due to downed trees. One person sustained a
minor injury when a tree fell on their car. Once the tornado
crossed the lake, it lifted just before Cherry Springs Road.

A new circulation formed east southeast of Tornado #1 and touched

barns and outbuildings were heavily damaged along the path. A one
story log cabin style house was picked up off of the foundation
and moved 6-8 feet off of center with most of the house still

to the foundation hence the EF-1 rating.
