Grazulis narrative:  Moved east-southeast from west of Deputy to two miles northeast of Madison.  Two houses, a trailer, and a barn were destroyed.  One of the houses, a prefabricated home set on a concrete slab, "could not be found".  Fortunately it was unoccupied.  A man residing in the trailer was fatally injured, dying a week later from his injuries.  A farm home was also destroyed.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC give a path length of 15 miles...Grazulis and Storm Data give 13 miles.  Storm Data ends this tornado two miles northeast of Madison near IN 7.  However IN 7 doesn't go northeast of Madison.
