Residents and city officials are cleaning up after a level one tornado struck downtown Paoli Monday evening.

A National Weather Service Storm Survey team confirms a tornado touched down at just after 7:30 P.M. west of Star Field on the north side of the Paoli School Complex destroying a 100 year old barn and heavily damaging the roofs of 2 other buildings.

The tornado then took a large section of roofing off of the Paoli Police Department before hitting the downtown square ripping the metal roofs off of a flower shop and furniture store.

Wind speeds of about 100 miles per hour toppled three chimneys on the Orange County Courthouse. Several homes also sustained roof damage.

Straight-line winds damaged trees and power lines as far as one mile each side of the tornado track. No one was hurt or injured.
