... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
tornado 3 miles south of cable in Champaign County Ohio on
July 27 2014. The tornado touched down at approximately
329 PM EDT along US Route 36... approximately two tenths of a
mile northeast of the intersection with yocom Road. Damage was
primarily confined to the properties of two adjacent residences
on the south side of US Route 36.

The most substantial damage occurred to a double wide
manufactured home that lost half of its roof from the
northwest side of the structure. The shingles and rafters
were lifted over the home... and deposited immediately to the
south. A 20 foot tall apple tree located 60 feet southwest
of the home was uprooted and fell to the southeast. The
orientation of this damage indicated some convergent motion
likely associated with a circulation on the ground. Other
smaller outdoor equipment and toys were also moved in a
similar convergent fashion in this same area.

Numerous smaller limbs... mostly less than 3 inches in
diameter... were broken from a Willow Tree located approximately
100 feet southeast of the home. These limbs were strewn to the
east for approximately 175 feet into a neighboring yard. The
orientation of this debris indicates it was likely deposited by
the front side of the tornadic circulation after it damaged the
home.

The affected homeowners did not witness the tornado... but there
were reports of funnel clouds in this area around the time this
damage occurred. It was also noted that no Leaf debris was
evident from trees surrounding the damage area... indicating a
brief and confined touchdown with relatively weaker winds
elsewhere in the immediate area.

Thanks is extended to the affected homeowners and the Champaign
County Ema for their assistance during this damage survey.
