 The Windsor-Robbinsville Township tornado began on Route 130 just 
 south of the town of Windsor near the Assunpink Creek. A few 
 hardwood trees were uprooted along the highway near the Chestnut 
 Montessori. The building lost a portion of its roofing material and 
 several other hardwood trees were uprooted or snapped just behind 
 the property into a small wooded area. The tornado then continued in 
 a somewhat transient and weak manner through a series of fields and 
 tree lines. A few large tree branches were snapped off near a farm 
 home on Windsor Road and a hardwood tree in a tree line was uprooted 
 across the street. The sporadic tree damage continued along 
 Perrineville Road where a large section of a tree was snapped off at 
 another residence. The tornado then produced an area of intense 
 convergent tree damage near the intersection of Perrineville Road 
 and Voelbel Road where numerous trees were snapped or uprooted. The 
 tornado ended just downstream from this intersection at a residence 
 on Perrineville Road where a final tree was uprooted.
 The National Weather Service would like to thank the Mercer County 
 Office of Emergency Management for their assistance in providing 
 information for this survey.
