            THE TORNADO FIRST TOUCHED DOWN 6 MILES
            SOUTHEAST OF COLUMBIA ALONG DALE MORRISON
            ROAD. NUMEROUS TREES WERE UPROOTED AND A
            145-FOOT BARN WAS DESTROYED, WITH THE TOP
            SHEARED OFF AN ADJACENT SILO. IT THEN MOVED
            EAST INTO A WOODED AREA, SNAPPING AND
            UPROOTING TREES. A MILE TO THE EAST, IT
            DAMAGED THREE BARNS AND UPROOTED AND SNAPPED
            MORE TREES ALONG MONTPELIER ROAD. A HOME
            NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF MONTPELIER RD AND
            OLD MONTPELIER RD SUSTAINED MINOR SIDING
            DAMAGE. AFTER TRAVELING ANOTHER 3/4 MILE
            EAST, THE TORNADO APPEARED TO RECYCLE,
            TAKING A TURN TO THE RIGHT FOR ITS LAST 1/2
            MILE, WHERE IT DESTROYED PART OF A LARGE
            BARN AND SLID THE REMAINING STRUCTURE 2 FEET
            OFF IT`S FOUNDATION, PULLING SEVERAL 18`
            DEEP CONCRETE FOOTINGS OUT OF THE GROUND.
            SOUTHEAST OF THIS BARN IT AGAIN MADE A
            DISTINCT CUT INTO A LARGE STAND OF TREES
            BEFORE DISSIPATING ALONG RUSSELL CREEK JUST
            PAST A BRIDGE ON ACREE RD.
