The Putnam County tornado proves the "tornados can't climb mountains" thing is a myth. According to the path they have, it must have went straight up a rock-faced cliff (the side of the plateau) that is at least six hundred feet high.

Also, they seem to be calling Johnson Baptist Church "Bethel Church", but I guess that's excusable as it is on Bethel Road.
