The official ruling from the National Weather Service on yesterday’s storm damage shows an EF-1 Tornado with 90 MPH winds. It had a path that was 50 yards wide and 1 mile long. These findings are subject to change as new evidence is processed. Also, this is the first Tornado on record for Cumberland County during the month of October.

It reportedly touched down just before 6:00 PM with max winds of 90 miles per hour. The path length was roughly 1 mile and path width was 50 yards.

This would be the first tornado to ever touch down in Cumberland County during October. The tornado moved north-northwest which was stated as being unusual for the area since it was not associated with a tropical storm system.
