Survey Summary: 
A very brief yet strong EF-1 tornado formed at the apex of the
bowing segment that moved through much of western Middle Tennessee
mid day on Thursday, June 28th. This brief tornado began on Buck
Branch Road knocking down several trees and breaking several large
limbs. In addition, roof damage occurred to a home on this road
with several outbuildings getting destroyed. As the tornado moved
southeast, two homes were struck on Mobley Ridge Road. One house
was completely destroyed as the foundation shifted 8-10 ft
southeast with the majority of the house falling into the
basement. Unfortunately, the house was only metal strapped (and
not nailed or bolted/screwed) in a few places to the outer wall.
One house occupant survived without injury while trying to get in
shelter. The home next door sustained roof damage along with a
garage and outbuilding getting destroyed. Eyewitness account
stated he saw a skinny rope like tornado touch down in this area.
Several more trees were uprooted or had the tops snapped off in
this area as well. The tornado continued southeast and weakened
before knocking more trees down on Dunlap Road.
