    Additional notes
    This weak F0 tornado was one of 11 tornadoes to touch down in the Wilmington, OH forecast area on the evening of July 11, 2006.  This was the most tornadoes in a single day in Wilmington's area since the office began operations in 1994.  Other tornadoes touched down that evening in eastern portions of the Cincinnati metro, southern portions of the Dayton metro, and near the Wilmington area.  Some of these tornadoes produced up to F1 damage.

    This tornado did not produce any known damage.  However an earlier tornado struck nearby Milford just minutes earlier and damaged some structures and trees.

    Safety Note: If you are in a vehicle in an urbanized area when a tornado is spotted, pull over and seek shelter in a sturdy building immediately!  Office buildings work best, but other businesses such as gas stations and restaurants will work if you can find a small interior space such as a cooler or a small restroom.  Avoid large open structures such as grocery stores and other large retailers.  Never try to outrun a tornado in your car when in an urbanized area!  Storms often cause motorists to slow down or block the road, and you will be stuck in your car without any means of escape.

    This tornado appears weak (and it was).  However do not let appearances fool you!  Sometimes strong or violent tornadoes look like this one, with only a small rotation at the surface and lacking a large condensation funnel.  Furthermore, weak tornadoes can rapidly intensify to violent tornadoes in a matter of seconds.
