The National Weather Service visited the Plumper Pumpkin Patch off of Old Cornelius Pass Rd. early Monday morning.

Officials confirmed the tornado was an EF-0, so the wind speed was between 65 and 85 miles per hour.

They say the damage of the crops indicated rotation.

The Plumper Pumpkin Patch will have to make some repairs after the weather action. Their sheds were battered and picnic tables were toppled over, and the pumpkin patch itself experienced some property damage. The owners said their solar panels and corn maze got torn up, as well.

But, no one was injured.
