September 26, 1976
Counties: Jefferson IN
Grazulis narrative: Moved east-southeast from west of Deputy to two miles northeast of Madison. Two houses, a trailer, and a barn were destroyed. One of the houses, a prefabricated home set on a concrete slab, "could not be found". Fortunately it was unoccupied. A man residing in the trailer was fatally injured, dying a week later from his injuries. A farm home was also destroyed.
Noted discrepancies: SPC and NCDC give a path length of 15 miles...Grazulis and Storm Data give 13 miles. Storm Data ends this tornado two miles northeast of Madison near IN 7. However IN 7 doesn't go northeast of Madison.
