The storm which produced an EF1 tornado in Ripley County produced
a separate, brief tornado in Western Dearborn County on the Friday
evening of June 18, 2021.

This tornado likely began in a wooded area behind Longbranch Road,
where downed trees were first noted. The most significant damage
occurred at two residences on Longbranch Road. Nearly half of the
metal roof of one residence was lifted and thrown in multiple
directions, with insulation splattered on the residence and even
onto parked vehicles. Trees on both properties were knocked down
or blown over in multiple directions and the tree damage exhibited
a very convergent pattern. The tornado is believed to have lifted
in another wooded area to the southeast of Longbranch Road, as no
other damage was seen on any roads to the southeast.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington thanks the Dearborn
County Indiana Emergency Management Agency for their assistance
with this storm damage survey.
