While severe weather is most active during the spring, it is also not uncommon during the fall months.

"Despite it being early November, a second season of severe weather is typical in the fall as progressively colder air battles with lingering warmth,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. “That is exactly what we saw in the Ohio Valley to end the weekend.”

The most extensive tornado damage occurred in Jay County, Indiana, and Celina, Ohio, on Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service gave the tornado a preliminary rating of EF-1 which has wind speeds of 86-110 mph. A final rating will be announced early this week as storm survey crews thoroughly assess the damage of this tornado.
