A brief EF-1 tornado was found just south of the town of  Jerome. The tornado struck a series of large industrial grain and feed silos and caused substantial damage. One of the silos had its foundation ripped out of the ground and it was bolted into concrete in several places. The roof of another large silo was blown downwind at least a half mile and fell apart into pieces. Electrical poles were snapped and trees were snapped at the trunk or uprooted along this short path.
