Survey Summary: Damage was first observed was at a farm along Bruns 
Road. Two large trees lost limbs or portions of their trunk and 
numerous smaller branches were broken. The resident reported seeing 
a mass of wind and clouds upstream from this location but not a 
funnel. There was no damage observed in the crops upstream of this 
location, at least from what could be seen from the ground. There 
was debris in the field north of the farm, but no other damage 
visible until the tornado entered Manhattan near the park. Damage in 
Manhattan consisted of numerous snapped branches of various sizes 
and at least two large (over 1 ft diameter) trunks snapped. Damage 
in the park was about 100 yards wide. Several buildings in town 
received just minor damage, but the post office lost a portion of 
its roof covering, and a building next door had broken windows as 
well as shingle and roof damage.  The tornado dissipated near 
Prairie Street as it exited downtown. No damage was seen in the tree 
line north of Prairie Street.
