Tornado Activity Confirmed in Starke County


“Tornado activity” was confirmed by the National Weather Service as the cause of extensive damage from Monday night’s storms in the Grovertown area.

Starke County EMA Director Ted Bombagetti told WKVI News that he conducted an assessment in the Grovertown area late Wednesday afternoon and he observed rotational damage in the area. That information was forwarded to National Weather Service officials who confirmed “tornado activity” occurred in the area.

An Enhanced Fujita (EF) scale number has not been assigned as of yet but that analysis should be released soon.

Bombagetti said he will be busy mapping and charting areas of damage for the next few days.
