BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The National Weather Service confirmed Monday that a “brief” tornado touched down in Boardman Sunday.

The EF0 tornado was confirmed to have touched down just east of the Southern Park Mall.

The designation of an EF0 was based on evidence of a visible funnel and aerial drone imagery of the storm damage.

The tornado touched down near York Avenue, just east of California Avenue where a telephone pole was slightly bent over. The tornado also hit a small strip mall, ripping an awning off the front of the building.

Workers with Owens Construction installed a tarp as a temporary fix for the hole in the roof. Water damage caused drywall and insulation to fall to the floor. The business that once occupied the space recently closed.

“If you think about it, it only came through I think they said maybe 150 yards. Really, this is the only building in the entire storm that got damaged,” Michael Owens said.

As the storm moved north, it also caused tree damage and blew a wood fence down before lifting off, the weather service said.
