Survey Summary:
A tornado developed in central Lincoln county near Monticello St
Ne. Initially uprooting several small trees and larger branches,
the tornado traveled south down Rogers Ln NE with an estimated
wind speed of 80 mph. The tornado traveled southwest across
Highway 84 E with estimated winds dropping to near 70 mph. As it
continued its southwest track, the tornado began to reintensify.
Numerous trees were snapped, and a roof was damaged as the
tornado crossed Highway 583 SE with winds reaching a maximum
speed of 90 mph, EF-1. After crossing Highway 583 SE, the tornado
continued for several more miles uprooting several more trees and
damaging a mobile home before finally dissipating a few miles
between Sammy Trl SE and Adoiph Ln SE. The tornado was on the
ground approximately 2.3 miles, had a maximum width of around
300 yards, and a maximum estimated intensity of 90 mph.
