            Corrects previous tornado report from West
            Damascus. A brief tornado EF1 tornado with
            90mph maximum winds touched down near the
            intersection of Oregon Turnpike and
            Cochecton Turnpike in West Damascus in the
            early evening of May 27th. The tornado
            initially produced minor tree and crop
            damage and lifted some debris into
            powerlines. It then continued eastward and
            crossed Cochecton Turnpike as well as
            Rutledgedale Road, uprooted a very large
            tree, and lofted additional debris into the
            tree. The tornado then crossed through a
            farm and caused significant roof and
            structural damage to a couple of barns. This
            is where the tornado was at its peak
            strength, with a metal roof partially lifted
            off a barn and a large wooden door ripped
            off another barn. Debris was also lofted
            down a hill roughly 100 feet away. Some
            minor tree and crop damage was observed down
            this hill, which was the last visible damage
            of the survey and the determined location
            where the tornado lifted.
