An EF0 tornado affected a path of approximately 6.2 miles in central Hamilton County, impacting the Mt. Healthy area, as well as places to the west and east, on the evening of April 8, 2020.

The tornado appears to have begun in Colerain Township near Colerain Ave, where trees were reported down along with minor damage to the YMCA Play Time Early Learning Center. The tornado continued east along or just north of Compton Road, uprooting trees. Further east, the tornado continued to produce tree damage and minor structure damage on Ranchill Drive, before moving into the center of Mt. Healthy. Numerous downed trees, leaning or broken transmission poles, and damage to several buildings marked the path of the tornado through Mt. Healthy following Compton Road. Tree and transmission pole damage continued east out of Mt. Healthy into Springfield Township. The tornado may have briefly become less organized before causing additional light structure damage and extensive tree damage from Winton Road through Hill Top Acres. Damage decreases quickly toward Ridgeview Drive, with the last sign of tornadic damage on Compton Road. The large number of snapped and uprooted trees with little to no leaves, snapped or leaning transmission poles, and minor structure damage lead to a rating of EF-0 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale with winds around 85 MPH.

The National Weather Service greatly appreciated the support and assistance from Hamilton County Ohio Emergency Management and local officials with these findings.
