The tornado that touched down Thursday night just after 7pm in Trumbull County has been classified as an EF-1 with winds estimated around 90 mph.
The National Weather Service from Cleveland surveyed the damage on Friday and determined it was definitely a twister that did tree damage around Fowler and Hartford Township’s just northeast of the Warren-Youngstown Regional Airport. There was a distinct twisting motion with the trees and the damage converged at a single point.
The NWS says the damage path was around a mile and a quarter long and about 200 yards wide. Most of the damage was all in a wooded area near Route 193 and the Sodom-Hutchins Road area. The twister likely touched down near SR-305. A resident led the NWS meteorologists back into the woods to see many trees toppled and snapped.
There was only minor damage in visible areas near SR-193, SR-305 and SR-7. The same tornado that touched down in Fowler Center is also responsible for the damage in Hartford Township.
Below is additional information from WYTV on the storm.
A tornado warning was issued at 7:05pm and the twister touched down at around 7:11pm.
