The vacant mobile home that Hull described belongs to Robbie and Kelly Urton.

KTTN observed small outbuildings blown down near that location, the roof gone from the Larry and Karen Bailey home, debris strewn in that area, an old barn blown down at the Trent and Rebecca Steinhoff property, power poles own, some trees down east of Highway 65, tin and insulation in trees, debris along Highway 65, and debris in a field along Route O east of Tindall.

The public reported damage to the "Chambers Home" east of Highway 65, and damage to a barn at that location.

There also were public reports of insulation and metal along Highway 65 north of Trenton, and signs and brush debris on Route O, east of Highway 65.

Storm warning sirens were sounded in Trenton by the police department at 3:41 PM, based on funnel cloud reports coming from outside Trenton, west of Edinburg.

The sirens were sounded a few minutes before the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for northern Grundy County and northeastern Daviess County. The warning mentioned a confirmed tornado that briefly touched down north of Jamesport at 3:40 PM, moving east-northeast at 40 miles per hour.

The cell earlier had prompted a tornado warning in DeKalb County, then a severe thunderstorm warning in Daviess County, before being upgraded to tornado status as it approached the Grundy County line.

The Daviess County Sheriff's Department in Gallatin reports that they began to receive reports from the public of storms, tornadoes, and funnel cloud sightings just after the 3 o'clock hour. Damage extended from the Daviess-DeKalb County line from Highway 6, northeast through the western half of the county, to just northeast of Jameson. The department said reports of damage to numerous power poles were received, as well as damage to a "few residences", along with barns and outbuildings. There were no reports of injuries.

In Daviess County, responders searched for damage from an area east of Jameson, to the Daviess-Grundy line, and from Jameson to Gilman City, with nothing found at those locales.

The National Weather Service received a report from law enforcement at 3:10 PM, indicating "power lines down and a house damaged" five miles east of Santa Rosa in Daviess County. That damage was blamed on thunderstorm wind gusts.

One and a quarter inch diameter hail was reported in Maysville at 2:42 PM. Pea to nickel sized hail and heavy rain were reported north of Galt at 4:20 PM.
