... NWS damage survey for extreme thunderstorm wind event across
eastern Missouri Ozarks on the afternoon of 05/27/2017...

Peak wind estimated: 80-95 mph
path length: up to 50 miles long
path width: 10 to 15 miles wide
fatalities: 0
injuries: 0

Start date: 05/27/2017
start time: 3:20 PM CDT
start location: near Greenview, Missouri
start lat/lon: 37.6272/-92.2664

End date: 05/27/2017
end time: 4:05 PM CDT
end location: near Salem, Missouri
end lat/lon:37.6471,-91.5398

A NWS storm survey indicated a destructive swath of wind started
in far southeastern Laclede County. This swath of extreme wind
continued across northern Texas County, southern Pulaski County,
southern Phelps County, western Dent County, and ended in central
Dent County.

Areas of large trees were uprooted or snapped off. Utility lines
and poles were blown down or hit by falling trees along most of
the wind swath. The hardest hit areas with more concentrated
damage, including structural damage, were the communities of edger
Springs, Salem, and along portions of Highway 17. Both
communities experienced minor to major damage to homes,
businesses, and outbuildings. The metal roof and main structure of
a church gym in Salem was crushed downward which indicated a
downburst wind up to nearly 100 mph. Vehicle damage, blown off
shingles, and blown out glass windows were very common across
these communities.

Some rural communities such as north of Evening Shade, palace, Big
Piney, and along Highway h sustained some structural damage with
numerous trees falling on vehicles and roofs. Several outbuildings
were severely damaged or destroyed. Some additional highways like
Highway 63, Highway c, Highway dd, Highway 72, Highway 68, Highway
19, and Highway 32 were impacted by these intense straight line
winds.

Based of the damage, wind speeds of 80 to 95 mph were common,
along with several areas of downburst winds that possibly reached
up to 100 mph.

Note:
the information in this statement is preliminary and subject to
change pending final review of the event and publication in NWS
storm data.
