Witnesses photograph Appin tornado; farmhouse & barn destroyed, livestock killed

This highly photogenic cone tornado formed at 7:30 pm out of an isolated supercell that developed on a lake breeze front. It caused extensive damage at a pig farm where trees were snapped and uprooted, cattle hutches blown around and a barn unroofed and torn apart, killing a number of pigs. The family that owned the property sought shelter in the basement of their farmhouse which was left with shattered windows and torn off siding and roofing. In addition, it was left impaled by lumber from the barn, pockmarked by impact damage from debris, and shifted slightly off of its foundation.
