Survey Summary:
A small, brief EF-0 tornado touched down on the west side of
Bradyville Road just north of Lassiter Road. Moving NNE, the
tornado caused significant roof damage to two homes on the west
side of the roadway. Further NNE, an old barn was destroyed where
three men escaped injury, and another home built in the 1890s 
sustained minor roof damage with several trees blown down. Several
eyewitness accounts state this tornado skipped along its path and
was only on the ground 1-2 minutes.
