The damage width of the tornado was estimated to be about 150 yards, according to the report.
Kriege said he and the NWS team surveyed the path along its route, speaking with residents who were home when the twister swept through. He said they described a frightening few minutes during which the winds howled and downed trees, and sent shingles and siding flying.
“It was scary,” Kriege said.
The tornado stayed on the ground for about a minute, according to the NWS report.
The NWS storm damage team thanked Kriege and his department for their assistance with the survey.
