Local

The National Weather Service recorded Friday’s tornado at 85 mile-per-hour winds, which classifies it as an EF0. 

The report says the tornado touched down inside a Falcon RV storage facility, flipping empty trailers and campers and shifting others off their stabilization blocks. 

Julie Bagley from Falcon Storage Center said the facility had 90 RVs and trucks damaged in the storm.

They estimate the tornado caused at least $500,000 in damage ranging from bent jacks and supports to RVs at a total loss. 

Bagley said most of the trailers tossed by the wind weighed 6,000 pounds or more. 

According to the National Weather Service’s report, no fatalities or injuries were recorded.
