    Wind Damage -  Eaton, Ohio


    Photographer's Description: This was taken in our backyard after a wind gust that measured 61 mph on February 6, 2008, uprooted a medium size pine tree.

    Photographer Jonathan Marker, NWS Spotter
    Date taken February 6, 2008
    Location Eaton, OH (Preble County)     map
    Event Straight-line wind damage

    Additional notes

    A strong line of thunderstorms moved across the Miami Valley during the early morning hours of February 6.  This line was associated with a widespread severe weather outbreak which killed more than 50 people in Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky.

    While winds around 60 mph usually will not uproot healthy large trees, the very wet soil likely made it easier to topple trees in this situation.
