* fatalities... 0

... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Wilmington OH has confirmed a
tornado near 5 miles southeast of Piqua in Miami County Ohio
on 05/24/2017.

The information below is updated from an earlier issuance at 344 PM
EDT today.

The tornado touched down along DeWeese Road approximately one-half
mile north of the intersection with east Rusk Road. Tree branches
generally 4 inches in diameter or smaller were broken immediately
west of DeWeese Road at the start of the tornado track. More
signicant damage occurred less than one-tenth of a mile north where
several Maple trees up to 18 inches in diamater were snapped. This
is where the tornado was believed to be at peak intensity with winds
estimated near 90 mph. There was also a large barn immediately east
that was moved several inches off its foundation. This movement was
likely caused by winds approaching 90 mph while flowing into the
circulation. The tornado then started to weaken as it moved north-
northwest near DeWeese Road to a point approximately two-tenths of a
mile southwest of the intersection with east Peterson Rd. Tree
damage was generally less significant in this area with estimated
wind speeds of 60-75 mph. The tornado appears to have lifted at this
point, and no further damage was observed farther northwest. Damage
along this path was oriented in convergent and semi-circular
patterns consistent with the presence of a tornado.

The National Weather Service would like to thank the Miami County
emergency management agency, the State of Ohio emergency management
agency and the affected property owners for their assistance during
this survey.

This information can also be found on our website at weather.Gov/iln.

For reference: the Enhanced Fujita scale classifies tornadoes
into the following categories:

EF0... wind speeds 65 to 85 mph.
EF1... wind speeds 86 to 110 mph.
EF2... wind speeds 111 to 135 mph.
EF3... wind speeds 136 to 165 mph.
EF4... wind speeds 166 to 200 mph.
EF5... wind speeds greater than 200 mph.
