Tornado Causes Damage Near Shelby

4/15/19 – 5:29 A.M.

Severe weather missed our area Sunday, but areas to our east weren’t as fortunate. The Mansfield News Journal reports a tornado damaged homes and a business in Shelby just before 5 p.m.

Debris across State Route 39 closed part of the highway, and downed power lines caused a power outage in the city.

An investigator from the National Weather Service will visit the area today to determine the strength of the tornado.
