... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
tornado near 2 miles SW of Hillsboro in Highland County Ohio on July
27 2014.

The tornado first touched down on a residential drive about a
quarter mile north of sr 138 where it brought down a couple large
trees. It then continued southeast across a field and crossed sr 138
where it brought down a large tree and other branches... snapped 3
Pine trees several feet above the ground... peeled back part of a
barn roof on both its east and west sides... and damaged some
fencing.

Isolated trees were snapped further southeast along the tornado's
discontinuous path. At a residence along Holladay Road... a large
well constructed barn had its cap blown from its roof and a small
section (less than 10 percent) of the roof's southeast corner was
peeled back exposing the inside. Large Pine trees were snapped with
large segments carried 50 to 60 yards downstream. A few 2 to 3 inch
diameter branches were blown onto a Van... and a car tire had a piece
of bark completely impaled through it. A 100 foot TV tower was
knocked down... and the house sustained minor roof and fascia damage.
A large well constructed metal storage barn across the street had
its front door ripped off and carried southeast.

Numerous large trees and branches were down along Ervin Road just
north of a Quarry. Further east along Ervin Road... the roof of a
house had numerous shingles ripped off and a small section (less
than 10 percent) of its southeast corner was peeled back exposing
the inside. Fascia on the north side of the garage was completely
ripped off and a 100 foot TV tower was toppled along the south side
of the house and garage. A small shed southwest of the house was
completely destroyed with the damage strewn into the front yard.
Another small shed south of the house was twisted off its foundation
and moved a short distance. Several large limbs around the residence
were also brought down. A short distance southeast of this residence
was a trailer home that had its west wall and a portion of its south
wall blown in... but most of the walls remained in tact. A barbecue
grill at this location was picked up and carried 3/4 of a mile
southeast where it was later found in tact. An old wooden pole barn
just southeast of the trailer home was completely destroyed.

Further southeast along the tornado's discontinuous path a few large
trees were brought down. A church along US 62 sustained very minor
roof and fascia damage. The church sign was blown through a school
bus window and the bus itself was shoved sideways several feet. Two
very large picnic tables (each weighing over 500 pounds) were pushed
a short distance into a Van and caused minor damage to the Van.
Another heavy table that was located in front of the Van was picked
up and smashed into a wooden Pavilion support Post... snapping the
Post.

Just southeast of the church... a residence along Green Road had
several large trees knocked down around the house. A large
unanchored shed with a lawn tractor inside was carried off its
foundation and skipped 200 feet eastward. Just east... a boat on a
trailer was nudged a few feet southeast from where it was parked.
Several large trees and limbs a short distance further to the east
along Green Road were knocked down... and this was where the tornado
lifted.

This information can also be found on our website at
