Public Information Statement

Statement as of 1:50 PM EDT on August 25, 2016


... Preliminary damage survey results...

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana has two teams
currently conducting damage surveys in Northeast Indiana and
Northwest Ohio.

... Adams County Indiana...
at this time we have confirmed that a tornado did occur in Adams
County on Wednesday evening. The tornado lifted numerous times
as it moved eastward and damage is consistent with winds of 90 to
100 mph. On the Enhanced Fujita scale this is rated as an EF-1
tornado.

... Allen County Indiana...
the survey team has been carefully working through the damage
area in Allen County and has identified that a tornado has
occurred. The exact intensity is not certain at this time as the
team is still assessing the type and degree of damage. At this
point the damage is consistent with wind speeds of 135 to 160
mph. This would be a preliminary rating of EF-3.

The damage from this storm extends into Ohio and additional survey
team has been deployed to begin the damage assessment process from
the Ohio Side. This team will be working south and west to help
complete the ground survey.

... Surveys to continue...
it is likely that a complete damage survey will take multiple
days to complete. Additionally... the NWS has scheduled a flyover
to obtain aerial evidence and to fill in any gaps that may not be
visible from the ground.

More details on the path length... intensity and width will be made
available as our teams work to complete this research. All data
presented is considered preliminary and subject to change.
