    The Walmart in Morhead did not get hit. There was some minor damage to items in the parking lot, the swing sets, the cart corrals and some carts were messed up. Some minor damage to the overhang at Lowes. I don't think there were any injuries. I did not see the camper that was reportedly blown over. It may have been removed already. I went thru at 8:00am.

    The cedarwood village area, where I live, in Brandywine is torn up. It was also not a tractor trailor that is down it is an RV. Also, the loading awning roof of Lowe's building is blown apart.

    A tornado touched down in the golf course behind my home. It seemed to be a water spout. As it went by my home, water was sprayed so forcefully against my home that it along with leaves blew through the creases in my back door.
