... Updated - preliminary damage survey results...

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana has two teams
continuing to conduct damage surveys in Northwest Ohio.

... Allen County Indiana update preliminary EF-3 tornado...

The survey team has been carefully working through the damage
area in Allen County and has identified that a tornado has
occurred. A team of storm damage experts from across the National
Weather Service have reviewed the collected data and have
concluded that the damage located 3 miles northeast of Woodburn
Indiana is consistent with 160 mph winds.

Winds of this speed are associated with tornado ratings of EF-3.

Several areas of damage have been identified throughout Northwest
Ohio and the survey teams continue to collect ground-based
information.

... Adams County Indiana...

At this time we have confirmed that a tornado did occur in Adams
County on Wednesday evening. The tornado lifted numerous times
as it moved eastward and damage is consistent with winds of 90 to
100 mph. On the Enhanced Fujita scale this is rated as an EF-1
tornado.

... Surveys to continue...

It is likely that a complete damage survey will take multiple
days to complete. Additionally... the NWS has scheduled a flyover
to obtain aerial evidence and to fill in any gaps that may not be
visible from the ground.

More details on the path length... intensity and width will be made
available as our teams work to complete this research. All data
presented is considered preliminary and subject to change.
