WILMINGTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The National Weather Service in Wilmington confirmed Thursday the storm damage in Enon was caused by two tornadoes.
Both tornadoes are rated at EF0, with wind speeds between 65 and 85 mph.
According to the NWS, the first evidence of damage occurred to a home and farm buildings along Dayton-Springfield Road southwest of Enon.
While there were numerous homes in the area which sustained tree damage and lightweight debris damage, the vast majority of this damage was from straight line winds, estimated at 70 mph.
The weather service says there was damage to a farm home and barns where large sections of roofing material was peeled off and lofted by the winds, causing damage to another home downwind. There was additional roof damage to the home and 2 additional farm buildings. The southward facing garage door to the home was blown inward. Two combines that were stored in one of the outbuildings were pushed downwind, with the outbuilding itself collapsed.
NWS officials say the heavy rain made it difficult to determine the source of some of the damage, particularly on the ground itself.
Neighbors told 2 NEWS Wednesday night they believed it was a tornado when it happened.
