This article explains what I feel is occurring, if not from tornadoes, then from very strong updrafts. I think if the updraft was strong enough it could grab many of the objects in the OP and transport and distribute them over a wide area.
On the afternoon of May 7, 1995, a series of tornadoes produced significant damage (up to F3 intensity) in north-central Texas and south-central Oklahoma. Beginning the day after this event, press releases were distributed to news media along and downstream of the tornado track to alert residents to be on the lookout for transported debris. Fifty-two reports of long-range debris transport were received. (Here "long-range" refers to debris which was found greater than 8 km [5 mi] from its source.) Forty-three items were traced back to their point of origin, and trajectories outside the storm environment have been estimated using local VORTEX soundings, WSR-88D data, and fall speeds calculated from the actual debris collected.

A peach of a storm. In 1961, a portion of Shreveport, LA was pelted by small, unripe peaches during a passing thunderstorm.

This thread. The stuff you mention. Just blows me away. How in the world? The only thing I can guess is these reports.. they just can't be true. It is just too hard for me to believe any of them.
I sure hope you find some sort of proof, because this interests me very much. When I get back home today from work, I'll be doing some research myself... Very odd stuff.

Do you mean like the Lebanon area for Wilson County?
Christian and his friends decided to take a trip to Salta Province during their Easter vacation. Around 3 p.m. on April 6, they started to hike into the San Bernardo Mountain. Two hours later, they found the ground around them was blanketed with spiders of many colors, each about four inches across.
They found more and more spiders along their way up the mountain. It was even stranger that some spiders were falling on them, because it was a broad mountain valley and nothing was above them but the sky. They looked up, and saw numerous spiders falling from the sky.
