SURVEY SUMMARY: A swath of extensive tree damage occurred in the 
wooded bottomlands along the Mississippi River levee on both the 
Missouri and Kentucky side of the Mississippi river. The tornado
proceeded southeast through agricultural flatlands of Fulton county, 
Kentucky destroying a few farm sheds. Power lines and poles were 
blown over along roads. Swaths of tree damage occurred along tree 
lines between farm fields. Irrigation pivots were blown over. 
Several grain bins were destroyed, including a grain bin that was 
blown over or through a row of trees and across a highway. 

There was scattered tree damage associated with straight-line
winds south of the tornado track, likely associated with the
rear-flank downdraft.
