Just east of Rossiter, the tornado tore the roof off of a barn. A child, playing outside, sought shelter in the barn. The roof lifted off and three of the four walls collapsed. The child was not injured. A horse that was inside the barn was sucked out and carried approximately 75 feet in the air into a field. The tornado traveled then traveled up a hill and significantly damaged one mobile home and destroyed a second. The second mobile home was carried at least 75 yards across a road and smashed against a row of trees. Three people were inside the mobile home and were injured, one critically.
