Centreville storm was EF1 tornado

CENTREVILLE — The National Weather Service has confirmed that the culprit responsible for damage to a stretch of Centreville Tuesday was an EF1 tornado.

The National Weather Service sent a crew Wednesday to assess the damage in Centreville.

The storm damaged 12 trailers, two houses and caused one minor injury.

An EF1 tornado, with the most damaging tornadoes being an EF5, can produce wind speeds anywhere from 73 to 112 mph. The Centreville Christmas tornado produced winds of approximately 105 mph.

The area was still without power Wednesday afternoon, but Police Chief James Reese was hopeful the power would be back on by that evening.

“We really need it on today with as cold as it’s supposed to get tonight,” Reese said.

Temperatures dropped into the lower 30s Wednesday night.

Most of the streets have been cleared of debris and insurance companies are making their way to assess the damage in the area, Reese said.

The Red Cross has brought in emergency food supplies.
