...Summary...
A ground and aerial drone survey confirmed two distinct and
adjacent tornadoes, which were spawned from a supercell
thunderstorm that tracked southeast across Washington and Lee
Townships in Carroll County, Ohio...and then into Springfield and
Ross Townships in Jefferson County, Ohio. These findings are
consistent with two hook echoes/rotational couplets on NWS Doppler
Radar in Pittsburgh.

This section outlines the first tornado track across Carroll
County. The tornado touched down at approximately 4:59pm along
Channel Rd NE and Cobbler Rd, where damage to a farm residence,
wood-framed metal roof shed, and crops were observed. Some damage
indicators included flattening of corn, blown-out windows, and a
wind-toppled chimney.

Several trees were blown down along Parma Rd, as the tornado
continued to the south-southeast.

The tornado then proceeded over rural, hilly woodland west of
Cinder Road (aka CR67). To further inspect glimpses of embedded
tree damage, a drone was launched from a gas well access road, and
discovered a long, continuous path of extensive tree damage. A
several hundred yard section along one of the hill peaks was
nearly completely deforested with hundreds of large trees
completely snapped and uprooted. An EF-2 rating was assigned to
this area.

The tornado continued downhill toward the gas well site, with the
last tree damage observed just prior to reaching Bay Rd. As this
tornado rapidly dissipated, a second tornado formed approximately
1 mile to the east-southeast and is discussed in the following
section.
