An EF-1 tornado with maximum wind speeds of 110 mph touched down west of Albemarle, Stanly County, NC.  A discontinuous damage path of 7.3 miles and maximum width of 400 yards, began along Flint Ridge Road approximately 2SW of Millingport.  The damage there consisted of a double-wide manufactured home that had the roof completely removed and shifted off of its foundation.  A large storage outbuilding at the same location was completely destroyed.  In addition, there was a long and narrow path of substantial tree damage consisting of both uprooted and snapped hard and softwood trees.  This type of damage was noted in numerous locations along Biles Road.  The tree damage appeared to continue east of Biles Road after crossing Millingport Road, but was not accessible. The damage path was picked back up along Pennington Road, where a child care center has considerable roof damage and numerous surrounding tree damage.  A large swath and path of tree damage continued to the northeast, before the damage mostly ended around Snuggs Park Road.

We would like to thank Stanly County Emergency Services for their guidance and assistance with this storm survey.
