The tornado that touched down Wednesday evening about 9 miles northeast of Langford has been rated an EF-1, the second-weakest on the enhanced Fujita scale. Officials say it carved a path about 50 yards wide and had peak winds of about 90 mph.
The twister destroyed a rural wooden garage, damaged the roof of a metal garage and caused some tree damage. Debris was scattered for about 100 yards.
