Notes from investigation in 2017: Several homes were damaged and trees uprooted as the tornado touched down. On the north side of Salvisa there was roof damage to barns and sheds along with extensive tree damage. On US 127 cars were blown off the road and damaged. Trees and power poles were snapped between Oregon and Ebenezer. Tree damage occurred near Nonesuch with F1 strength winds in southern Woodford County.
Noted discrepancies:  SPC and NCDC list this as an F2, but Grazulis does not list it (which it should be, regardless of strength, as was his practice in his 1992-1995 supplement...lending support to the theory that this tornado is listed in Grazulis as the Woodford County event.)  The lat/lon given for this tornado agrees with the location Grazulis gives:  Salvisa, which is in Mercer County, not Woodford.  Storm Data mentions the tornado location as Salvisa, but lists it under Woodford County, at 7:45am, with 6 injuries.

In southwest Jessamine County at the intersection of KY 1268 and US 68 seven horses were killed along with extensive barn and fence damage. West Jessamine High School was hit around 7:36am when the tornadic wind speeds were around 145mph. Extensive structural damage was done to the school, amounting to a cost of two million dollars. There were at least 20 injuries, one critical. The tornado struck as students were arriving at school on buses. Eleven buses suffered damage and had their windows blown out. The high school roof was lifted and some top floor exterior walls collapsed. The school's tobacco barn and greenhouse were destroyed and the cattle barn was damaged.  The tornado then hit a strip mall and Wal-Mart producing roof uplift and sign damage. Numerous pallets loaded with mulch and topsoil were thrown or shifted several yards. Across the county numerous power poles, barns, and homes sustained damage. The tornado weakened to F1 strength as it moved into the Tates Creek Trailer Park on the Fayette County line. There was complete destruction of roofs and walls of several single and double wide trailers. As the tornado lifted at Coletown several trees fell or were snapped.
