Two tornadoes were confirmed by National Weather Service meteorologists after damage surveys. The first tornado, an EF1, hit the Countryside Mobile Home Park in Columbia City in Whitley County, Indiana and the second tornado, an EF0, occurred in south central Defiance County, Ohio. No fatalities or major injuries occurred in either of the tornadoes thanks in part to great spotter reports and NWS ;Tornado Warning lead times for the Whitley and Defiance County tornadoes of 17 and 13 minutes respectively.

Several pictures of the Defiance County tornado taken by storm chasers Eric Martinez and Derek Tanner from near Cecil-Williams Center Road and Jericho Road can be seen below:
