This photo shows
tornado damage with the loss of a roof and moving the
house slightly, while the walls remained standing and intact. The
winds which damaged this home were probably between 90 and 105 mph.
This tornado was rated
on the old Fujita scale.
This tornado was a reminder that the Ohio Valley has a secondary severe
weather season in October and November.
Safety Note: In a single story home without a basement, the
safest place to be is a closet or small room without windows in the
middle of the house. As seen here, roofs are easily removed in
tornadoes. This can cause outer walls of a home to collapse which
will put you in danger.
