The location of this tornado on the map is very wrong. It indicates the tornado touched down on West Main Street west of Lancaster Avenue. The actual location of touchdown was on the south side of Ky 876, just east of the railroad tracks. The touchdown was just west of the Richmond Mall. It clipped part of the parking lot, traveling northeast. (It also incorrectly shows the Pattie A. Clay hospital adjoining the Richmond Mall. In fact, the hospital is immediately west of the railroad line on the south side of KY 876.) It crossed some partially open land, damaged a single family residence, and then hit a used car lot on Big Hill Avenue. It crossed Big Hill Avenue and demolished the Banana's Restaurant, caused minor damage to Maroon Lanes Bowling, and proceeded into the countryside where it damaged a barn before dissipating. I have lived in Richmond since 1966, and was home when this happened.
