NWS Confirms Two Tornados Hit Grant County

by Sammy Edmonds posted Dec 3 2013 2:19PM
Speculation that parts of Grant County was struck by a tornado was right.  In fact, the National Weather Service is reporting that two tornados and a micro-burst touched down in Grant County Sunday.  One tornado struck the Sweetser area and continued through to the Grant/Wabash County line.  30 to 40 homes were damaged in that area, up to ten of them receiving significant damage.  Then there was a brief tornado touchdown near Roseburg five minutes later.
 
Grant County Emergency Management Agency Director Bruce Bender has confirmed a tornado struck northeastern Grant County causing significant damage to the Dollar General Distribution Center and the Summit Village Mobile Home Park.
