Path length:  11 miles
Time:  6:10pm CST
Notes:  There is considerable disagreement among data sources regarding the end point of this tornado (despite excellent agreement on the touchdown point).  After further research, it has been decided that this tornado touched down west of Cool Springs and north of Wysox in Ohio County.  It proceeded to the east-southeast through Little Bend (near Mining City) and into Butler County.  This project will end the tornado about two miles into Butler County.  Damage was found as far east as the Reedyville and Roundhill areas along the Butler County/Edmonson County line, however these locations are not really in line with the earlier known tornado locations, and also there have been no damage reports found between the end point described above and these two locations.  Damage in Roundhill and Reedyville may have been from straight-line winds or a separate small tornado.  At this tornado's touchdown point in Ohio County a witness said it "swerved" as it approached his house, just grazing the home but destroying the garage and a nearby barn.   Multiple vortices may have been visible.  The tornado was witnessed at Little Bend and was described as being about 17 yards wide while moving at about 40mph (and accompanied by large hail).   In this area a barn was destroyed and roof shingles were found embedded two inches deep into an oak tree.  Will not disagree with the official strength ranking of F3, but it sounds like this tornado was a minimal F3 at best.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC rank this as an F3, Grazulis call it an F2.  SPC and NCDC list a path width of 20 yards, Grazulis says 50 yards, Storm Data 14 yards.

Grazulis narrative:  Skipped east-southeast from four miles east of Drakesboro, to near Ennis, South Hill, and Riverside.  A six room brick veneer home was completely destroyed, as were several large trailers.  There were two injuries in one, and a death in another.  Many homes sustained damage.  South Hill, where several people were injured and trailers were swept away, and Dunbar were especially hard hit.  Cherry Chapel Church near Richardsville was destroyed.  Damage was found along Stringtown Road in Butler County.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC list no injuries, Grazulis lists 20, Storm Data lists 7.  SPC lists a path length of 27 miles, NCDC 28 miles, Grazulis and Storm Data 30 miles.  Grazulis ends this tornado closer to Riverside, SPC and NCDC end it closer to Richardsville (both in Warren County).  According to Storm Data, radar first showed a hook echo four miles east of Drakesboro.  The storm struck South Hill, 1.75 miles east of Ennis, and "probably" on to Riverside and Richardsville.
