Once the tornado crossed into Lincoln County from Pulaski County near Eubank, it first destroyed a metal shed and blew it 700 feet away.  Half of the roof of a mobile home was also taken off.  The tornado then crossed US 27, destroying several barns, uprooting and snapping trees, and damaging several homes.  Three miles east of Waynesburg a mobile home was completely destroyed and a house was pushed 30 feet off of its foundation.  The tornado was at its strongest right before it dissipated.  The tornado went over a hill and down into a hollow where multiple vortices were witnessed.  A mobile home was destroyed and a conventional home was shoved 10 feet off of its foundation.  The tornado dissipated about a minute later.

Lincoln County  It only took 100mph winds to demolish this mobile home.  Mobile homes offer no protection from tornadic winds.
