    Time:

    This tornado touched down northeast of the Fackler community, causing damage to large trees and minor damage to mobile homes. It continued across Highway 72,

    snapping trees and causing roof damage to several homes. 24 high tension electrical truss towers were twisted and flattened northeast of the Stevenson Airport. As the storm continued northeast, it claimed several mobile homes and a metal barn was

    destroyed. The worst damage was observed in the southern area of Bridgeport. Several homes were reduced to their foundations, some cars were thrown

    approximately 50 yards, and numerous trees were snapped.

    Damage photos (right) show a demolished house down

    to its foundation, as well as high-tension electrical truss

    towers crumpled. To the left, a map of the tornado

    track is shown.
