Re: 20th January 2005 – Storm outbreak

I looked up the location of the damage west of Berry on google maps and it does appear that damage can be seen on the satellite image. It would appear that this damage fits very well with the photos above. I am assuming these satellite images were taken some time after the 20th of January 2005, how long I do not know (if they were taken before then I am just making a fool of myself). I have attached an annotated google maps image below-

Here is the direct link to google maps page to zoom in on the relevent areas-

This seems to indicate a damage path of up to ~1.5 km long and possibly up to ~200 m wide. This may add further support that this was actually a tornado. If this is the case, it would most certainly be on the lower end of the scale.
