A tornado moved from five miles south of Sheffield, through Kane and into Elk State Park.  There were 45 buildings damaged or destroyed.  Forest devastation was so complete near the path’s center that every tree was either uprooted or snapped off at the base.  Many ended up defoliated and/or debarked.
