A National Weather Service damage survey in collaboration with Miami County Emergency Management Agency and Troy Fire Department confirmed a weak tornado touched down initially in the southwest portions of the city of Troy, and moved northeast through the center of the city, crossing the Great Miami Riverbefore weakening and lifting in the far northeast portions of the city.
Much of the damage surveyed was confined to trees and roofs, both residential and commercial as the tornado moved through the city. To the west of the Great Miami River, damage was more intermittent and weak in comparison to areas east of the Miami River where more concentrated and significant tree and roof damage was noted. In particular, areas near the Troy High School and then along and along and east of North Market Street saw the most concentrated and higher end structural damage to roofing material. This includes the far eastern portions of the downtown area which saw several businesses lose all or portions of their roofs.
Damage was tornadic in nature, especially on the east side of the Great Miami River where convergent tree damage was easily noted before the tornado rapidly weakened as it left the city. Damage along the path was consistent with wind speeds ranging from 65 to 80 mph, again with the highest windspeeds estimated on the east side of the Great Miami River.
