...Summary...
An NWS damage survey team has determined that an EF-1 tornado
touched down along Almahurst Lane in the Belle Meade Farms
neighborhood near Loveland.

Initial damage, consisting of uprooted trees and damaged fences,
was noted just south of the intersection of Oriskany Drive and
Almahurst Lane with damage continuing along the lake shore of the
community lake. The tornado intensified as it crossed Belle Meade
Farms Drive and eventually Three Chimneys Lane where minor roof
and siding damage was noted along with dozens of snapped and
uprooted trees. The tornado then crossed Wards Corner Road where
it snapped a few dozen hardwood trees and caused more fence and
minor roof damage. Additional damage was found along Murle Lane,
Ironwood Drive, and Paxton Woods Drive.

Additional damage extending all the way to Highway 28 was
determined to be from straight line winds. Damage noted in this
stretch included hundreds of downed trees and some minor property
damage including siding loss to a home.

The National Weather Service would like to thank the Clermont
County Emergency Management Agency for assistance and coordination
in the completion of this survey.
