Tornado Outbreak of May 16, 2018
The 2018 Millersport, Ohio Tornado was a destructive and deadly, EF4-rated tornado that struck Millersport, Ohio in the late-afternoon to early-evening hours of May 16, 2018. In all, 20 deaths occurred, along with 237 injuries, and $1.4 billion (2018 USD) in damages.

The tornado first touched down at 5:03 PM EST in an open field northwest of Lancaster. Causing EF0 to EF1 damage, hundreds of trees were downed and multiple homes suffered either minor or moderate damage. Beginning to strengthen, high-end EF1 damage occurred to multiple homes that suffered severe roof damage. Tracking along Ohio State Route 158, EF2 damage was observed at multiple properties where a few walls were blown over. Some argue that EF3 damage occurred at these locations, however it was revealed that the homes were poorly-built.

A tornado emergency was issued for Fairfield County as the tornado became a wedge when it approached Baltimore. EF3 damage occurred in these areas, where 2 deaths and 16 injuries occurred as multiple mobile homes were destroyed and a well-built home was leveled at high-end EF3 strength. Tracking north-northeast, the tornado reached EF4 southwest of Millersport. In this area, multiple homes were completely leveled, with multiple homes being partially swept away.

Tracking into western Millersport, the worst damage occurred at a rope factory and a neighborhood, where 17 deaths and 225 injuries occurred as most of the factory was leveled and all of the homes in the neighborhood were either severely or badly damaged. One of was leveled to where it completely swept away. However, the home was nailed to it's foundation instead of being bolted. Another person was killed, along with 6 injuries as a line of mobile homes were blown away at high-end EF3 strength as the tornado began a stage of rapid weakening. Millersport High School suffered significant damage at EF2 strength.

Continuing to weaken, the tornado caused EF0 damage northeast of Millersport. At 6:44 PM EST, the tornado dissipated 26 miles northeast of Millersport after killing 20, injuring 237, and causing $1.4 billion (2018 USD) in damages.
