 Brief Description: The tornado that formed in Montgomery County north of Bellflower moved into Lincoln County, strengthened, and caused extensive damage along Highway E on the north side of Olney. A home was completely destroyed as the tornado reached F3 intensity and was about 300 yards wide. The family at home escaped injury as they had taken shelter in the basement. About 1:35 am CST, the tornado destroyed a home and caused damage to a home business along Highway H northwest of Silex. At this point the tornado was a strong F2 and about 200 yards wide. A man in the home that was destroyed suffered a broken leg. At the home business, the home suffered roof damage and had the north side brick wall pulled off of the house. A large machine shed suffered extensive damage and a 50 foot travel trailer and the pickup truck it was attached too were blown onto their sides. The tornado continued northeast and primarily crossed over wildlife and conservation areas south of Whiteside. The tornado crossed US Highway 61 near the intersection with Highway F about 1:40 am CST and caused minor damage at a farm and a couple of homes. An old barn was destroyed, a metal shed was destroyed, a garage had the door buckled and windows blown out. A nearly constant trail of tree damage continued as the tornado approached the Lincoln Pike County line west of Dameron about 1:46 am CST.
