The National Weather Ser­vice now has released more details regard­ing the tor­nado that struck Cloverdale.

They now can con­firm that an EF-2 tor­nado struck Pauld­ing and Put­nam coun­ties on Sun­day. The tor­nado had max­i­mum wind speeds of 130 mph and cut an 8-mile path of destruc­tion that was 440 yards wide.

The tor­nado caused struc­tural dam­age and took out power to thou­sands.

Some cus­tomers still reported power out­ages as late as yes­ter­day after­noon, and even after all power is restored, util­i­ties say it may be weeks before final repairs can be accomplished.
