TRACK INFORMATION UPDATED BASED ON SUBSEQUENT SURVEY INFORMATION  
AND MORE REPORTED DAMAGE...  
 
THE TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN NEAR FIRESIDE DRIVE IN DISPUTANTA CAUSING  
SOME DOWNED TREES AND A CAR PORT TO BE BLOWN OVER, CONSISTENT WITH  
EF0 DAMAGE. THE TORNADO CONTINUED MOVING NORTH NORTHEAST ACROSS WEBB  
ROAD AND THEN LEBANON ROAD, CEDAR LANE AND POLE RUN ROAD. MANY TREES  
WERE SNAPPED OR UPROOTED AND NUMEROUS SHEDS AND OUTBUILDINGS  
RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE OR WERE DESTROYED BETWEEN LEBANON ROAD  
AND POLE RUN ROAD. THIS AREA WAS WHERE THE EF-1 DAMAGE OCCURRED. THE  
TORNADO LIFTED NORTH OF POLE RUN ROAD BEFORE ROUTE 10.  
 
THERE WAS ADDITIONAL TREE DAMAGE ALONG HINES ROAD JUST NORTH OF  
NEWVILLE. IT IS POSSIBLE THERE WAS A BRIEF SPIN UP TORNADO  
ASSOCIATED WITH THIS DAMAGE, ALTHOUGH THE EXACT CAUSE CANNOT BE  
DETERMINED DUE TO THE LIMITED NATURE OF DAMAGE.
