Tornado hits small Arizona town of Star Valley
A tornado that hit the town of Star Valley prompted the National Weather Service's Flagstaff branch to survey damage to the area, the organization said Sunday.
Officials from the town located about 95 miles northeast of Phoenix said at least 10 homes were damaged due to the wind, according to ABC15 Arizona.
Nobody was hurt in the tornado, but the gusts killed a dog, according to the TV station.
National Weather Service staff arrived in Star Valley around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Tony Merriman, a meteorologist for the organization, said in a brief interview.
Our survey team has returned from the field and determined that damage near the Star Valley, AZ, area was consistent with that of an EF-1 tornado. Estimated peak winds ranged between 95 and 105 mph.
