A tornado rapidly developed Saturday evening near Hillsboro Road to the east of Park Hills, Missouri. This tornado initially caused sporadic tree damage to a grove of trees west of Hillsboro Road. As it approached Hillsboro Road, the tornado widened and became a bit stronger, causing EF-1 damage to a home by collapsing its southward facing exterior wall. Minor roof damage also occurred to another home, along with several tress that were snapped. The tornado then crossed Hillsboro Road and did some minor roof damage to an outbuilding on the east side of the roadway. The tornado lifted as it approached a large grove of trees on the eastern side of Hillsboro Road. NWS St. Louis would like to thank Nick Jones, the acting Emergency Manager in St. Francois County, Missouri for his extensive help in surveying the damage.
