When a tornado touched down in Varnamtown on Friday, it was a moment one resident has prepared for almost his whole life, all eight years of it.

The National Weather Service reported an EF-0 tornado—based on the Enhanced Fujita (EF) scale used to rate the strength of tornadoes based on the damage they cause—touched down near Varnamtown along Stone Chimney Road at 1:22 a.m. Friday, June 7. While the tornado was rated on the weak end of the scale, winds were estimated at 70 mph, trees were downed, and there was some damage.
