“We sent a survey crew out and there’s some places we can’t get to, just with that being a forest area, but everything we saw was damage to trees,” Titus told WWJ’s Beth Fisher. “There was a trampoline [damaged] but no structural damage.”
The tornadoes were considered relatively weak. Titus said schools in the area were placed on lockdown as a precaution when the tornado warning was issued.
