...Summary...
The National Weather Service in Wilmington Ohio has confirmed an
EF0 tornado south of Troy in Miami County, Ohio.

This tornado developed from the same thunderstorm that caused the
EF3 tornado near West Milton. This tornado developed several
minutes after that tornado had dissipated.

Damage from this tornado is believed to have begun at a residence
on Monroe Concord Road, where minor tree damage was observed,
along with damage to a shed. Further to the northeast, at a
property on Peters Road just north of Interstate 75, an
outbuilding suffered partial loss of some roofing material.

Damage appeared to be most significant in a subdivision south of
Swailes Road. Dozens of trees were downed or damaged within this
subdivision, which includes Linconshire Drive, Fiesta Drive,
Greenlawn Drive, and Windmere Drive. Although tree damage was
fairly widespread, there were no obvious signs of structural
damage to any of the homes.

Just west of South County Road 25A, a barn was damaged,
experiencing partial roof loss. Several trees were also downed at
this property.

Minor tree damage was observed further to the northeast along
State Route 202, Knoop Road, and South Childrens Home Grayson
Road. The tornado is believed to have dissipated somewhere near
South Childrens Home Grayson Road, south of State Route 41.
