...SUMMARY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, WITH ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT FROM THE

SHERIFF’S OFFICE AND PIC-A-FAY FIRE CONFIRMS A BRIEF AND WEAK 
TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN NEAR NEW HOLLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON OF 
THURSDAY, JULY 29, 2021. 

BASED ON AERIAL FOOTAGE AND PHOTOS, THE TORNADO APPEARS TO HAVE
INITIALLY TOUCHED DOWN IN A FIELD JUST NORTHWEST OF DICK ROAD,
CROSSING DICK ROAD AND PRODUCING DAMAGE ON A FARM. SOME ROOF
DAMAGE WAS NOTED ON THE SINGLE STORY RESIDENCE ON DICK ROAD, WHILE
A LARGE OUTBUILDING WAS DESTROYED. AERIAL FOOTAGE CONFIRMED
EVIDENCE OF THE TORNADO IN THE GRASS AND FIELD BETWEEN DICK ROAD
AND MOUSER ROAD. DEBRIS FROM THE OUTBUILDING WAS ALSO SCATTERED
THROUGHOUT THE FIELD BETWEEN DICK ROAD AND MOUSER ROAD. ADDITIONAL
DAMAGE OCCURRED ON A PROPERTY ON MOUSER ROAD WHERE TWO BARNS WERE
COMPLETELY DESTROYED. 

THE TORNADO IS BELIEVED TO HAVE LIFTED SHORTLY AFTER DESTROYING
THE BARNS ON MOUSER ROAD. WHILE THE TORNADO LIFTED BEFORE REACHING
US 22, DEBRIS FROM THE DESTROYED MOUSER ROAD BARNS WAS THROWN
ABOUT ONE QUARTER MILE AND WAS NOTED ON THE OTHER SIDE OF US 22.
BASED ON AN EVALUATION OF THE DAMAGE, WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS
BRIEF TORNADO WERE AROUND 85 MPH. 

ADDITIONAL STORM DAMAGE WITHIN THE VILLAGE OF NEW HOLLAND WAS A
RESULT OF STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS. 

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN WILMINGTON WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE
PICKAWAY COUNTY OHIO EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY, PICKAWAY COUNTY
SHERIFF’S OFFICE AND PIC-A-FAY FIRE FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE WITH 
THESE FINDINGS.
