I live in coventyville and I think the torando touched down here. If you want to see the damage take a drive on the back roads where the line of trees are down and roads are damaged.Buckley Hill Bendick Road. County 17 is still closed.

I live on a hill in the CV area. I got great pictures of it. Definite rotation and like someone else said it was picking up fog and clouds as it rotated.
