The National Weather Service in conjunction with extensive preliminary work done by WBKO Chief Meteorologist Chris Allen conducted a storm damage survey in Hart County and found straight-line wind damage. Sporadic damage occurred over a 2-mile wide area.

The first damage was found off Bacon Creek Spur Road, where a 30 by 145 foot greenhouse's canopy went flying and poles were bent. A 48 by 70 foot barn also experienced significant roof damage. Nickel to quarter-size hail occurred at this location.

At 5140 Hwy 728, a 32-foot cabin was destroyed. Insulation was thrown approximately 150 yards due east.  Further east, two older tobacco barns were destroyed, and one of those barns had its metal siding thrown 350 yards due east.

A barn canopy was bent and damaged at 11265 Hammonville Road. However, the worst damage occurred on Hwy 357 S, one mile south of Hwy 728. A single-wide mobile home was destroyed, with the roof and most of the exterior siding gone. The mobile home is now
uninhabitable. One old barn was also destroyed. At this location, winds were approximately 70-75 mph.
