NWS assessment team confirms two tornadoes near Angola

ANGOLA – A National Weather Service assessment team confirmed Sunday two tornado tracks near Angola Saturday evening.

The first was a weak but multi-funnel EF0 that traveled seven-tenths of a mile with winds around 80 mile per hour. It started at 6:30 p-m and lasted only a minute. Witnesses said it touched down in a field then intensified as it moved east northeast and removed a portion of a roof. It damaged two barns and crossed 150 West where it snapped and uprooted numerous trees before lifting.

The second was a weak EF1 tornado that traveled nine-tenths of a mile causing extensive tree damage along a railroad and some minor roof damage. It started at 6:34 and lasted nearly six minutes with peak winds around 90 miles per hour.
