In the early part of the path, the tornado damaged a home and a couple of sheds. It moved into a neighborhood with new, well-built homes. Five of the homes were severely damaged. Per the survey, some roofs were ripped off, walls were collapsed and a few homes were moved off their foundation. The tornado moved away from this area and onto the Caledonia school complex.
It set down the second time in the middle of a practice filed behind and west of R. H. Watkins High School. “It dug a hole in the center of the field, hit the west wall of the school building and caused an estimated $600,000 to $700,000 in damages.”
