...Summary...
The National Weather Service confirmed an EF1 tornado in
northeastern Muskingum County just east of Dresden on Stilwell
Road off of Boy Scout Road. The damage was confined to a remote
section of the county where about 15 to 20 hardwood trees were
snapped half way up, while two trees were observed to be uprooted.
Downed trees closed Stilwell Road for a time last evening.

Damage also was surveyed in North Zanesville along Olde Falls
Road, where several trees were downed and large branches knocked
down. Damage in this area was classified as straight-line wind.
This was the same conclusion at Green Valley Golf Course, where a
few trees were blown down.

This is the third tornado in six weeks for Muskingum County and
the 14th tornado for our forecast area for the year, which is well
above the average of five. Since 1950, this is the 19th tornado
that has been recorded in Muskingum County.

The National Weather Service would like to thank the Muskingum
County Emergency Management Agency for their assistance.
