The National Weather Service continues what will be a full week of surveying storm damage in the Quad State, and they turned in their latest findings on Tuesday afternoon.

They determined than an EF-1 tornado touched down on Sunday morning two miles south of Fancy Farm in Graves County. Peak winds were 100 miles per hour along a 5-mile track. The tornado was on the ground for five minutes. At the end of the tornado path, straight line winds of 70-80 mph continued east into Mayfield.

No fatalities or injuries were reported. The weather service reported moderate tree damage along the path with a couple of trees uprooted and one farm building destroyed.

Staff from the NWS' Louisville office found damage in southeastern Muhlenberg County consistent with an EF-1 tornado with peak winds of 110 mph. They reported an extremely chaotic and broad damage path that tracked southeast of Greenville through Beechmont and across the county line. The team will continue to finalize the rest of the storm path that may have been on the ground for 30 to 40 miles. 

In southern Illinois on Tuesday, a survey team reported that another tornado touched down in White County on Sunday night. It covered 22 miles in 24 minutes with peak winds of 110 mph, making it an EF-1 storm.

Meanwhile, more Paducah teams are working in southeast Missouri. One crew is finalizing a report on a tornado from Grayville to Fort Branch that looks to be an EF-1 with 110-mph winds. They also determined that an EF2 tornado touched down on Sunday in Ripley County at the Fourche Creek Conservation Area south of Doniphan and stopped along the westen edge of Poplar Bluff. No injuries or deaths were reported. It had a speed of 115 mph, and the length of the track was 39 miles.

Crews are also in Christian andTodd counties, working their way back into Trigg County.
