Summary

A tornado briefly touched down in the town of Kirkland, along Kellogg Street, just west of State Route 12, about 2.5 miles southeast of Clinton. Several large hardwood trees were either uprooted or snapped. The downed trees on this property, just on the north side of Kellogg Street, were pointing towards the west to southwest, while the storm motion and most other damage were oriented towards the east.

As judged from the observed damage patterns, and also eyewitness accounts, the tornado appeared to be on the ground for only a very short period of time, very likely less than a minute. The tornado appeared to lift just on the south of Kellogg Street, before reaching State Route 12.

The information in this statement is preliminary and subject to change pending final review of the event(s) and publication in National Weather Service Storm Data.

For reference, the Enhanced Fujita Scale classification can be found here.
