Meteorologists from the National Weather Service have viewed the damage and say the storm was not a tornado. Instead, they're classifying it as a downburst with straight line winds up to 80 mph.
A downburst is created by an area of significantly rain-cooled air that, after reaching ground level, spreads out in all directions producing strong winds.
