A tornado affected a path of approximately 3.3 miles in eastern Hamilton County, impacting the Indian Hill area, on the evening of April 8, 2020. The tornado appears to have begun along Keller Road, and continued southeast to the 8000 block of Blome Road, where trees were reported down. Numerous trees were also knocked down at the intersection of Drake Road and Camargo Road. As the tornado moved southeast, it is possible it briefly lifted, before producing additional damage along properties on Given Road. Damage to trees and barns was observed, in addition to downed power poles on Given Road, just north of the intersection with Shawnee Run Road. Additional tree damage was noted on Alberly Road. This tornado is believed to have dissipated along Park Road, where a few trees were downed. Based on the damage, the tornado which impacted eastern Hamilton County in the Indian Hill area produced winds of around 85 mph, and is rated EF-0 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.
Damage further east of the tornado track in the Milford area in Clermont County was determined to be the result of straight line winds. Damage in the Madeira, Silverton, and Amberley areas in Hamilton County was also determined to be the result of straight line winds. Winds in these areas were estimated to be 70 to 80 MPH.
Damage is still being investigated in other parts of Hamilton County, including the Mt Healthy area.
