The tornado traveled a 1.3 mile path beginning east of the intersection of Sand Road and Cabin Lane, according to preliminary information. Winds reached an estimated top speed of 110 mph before the tornado weakened and lifted between Schaefer and Jackson roads.
No injuries were reported, according to Lt. Chris Hoyt with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Dan Miller, science and operations officer with the National Weather Service, said some structural damage was caused by falling trees.
