National Weather Service Meteorologist Rusty Kapela has completed his survey of the Clear Lake area near Milton, and determined the sudden storm Tuesday night included a tornado.

Kapela says some downed trees, and a displaced porch, warrant the lowest tornado classification of a F0.

He says wind speeds probably reached between 65 and 75 miles an hour, and the tornado was probably on the ground for only a minute or so.
