SURVEY SUMMARY:
A NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DAMAGE SURVEY DETERMINED THE DAMAGE
NEAR HAZEL GREEN WAS CAUSED BY A WEAK EF-0 TORNADO, WITH PEAK
WINDS OF 76 MPH. 

THE MAIN DAMAGE INDICATORS FROM THIS TORNADO
WERE AT LEAST 2 DOWNED OR UPROOTED TREES AND MULTIPLE AREAS OF
LARGE BRANCHES THAT WERE DOWNED BY THE WINDS. THE DAMAGE OCCURRED
MAINLY ALONG GRIMWOOD DRIVE, WEST OF US 431 IN HAZEL GREEN.
DAMAGE ALSO EXTENDED INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD OFF GRIMWOOD DRIVE NEAR
