A second, brief tornado was documented along Riverview Street in Lower Burrell. A narrow path consisting mainly of snapped and uprooted trees and limbs was encountered. Additionally, modest damage to shingles and fences was noted. Supporting the presence of a strong circulation, splatter of mud, pine needles and debris was discovered on the east-facing side of affected homes, and downwind lawn furniture and trampolines were lofted and deposited westward from their initial locations.
Wind was fairly focused, with damage consistent with 70 mph wind gusts. This brief tornado was associated with a second mesovortex/updraft distinct from the Tarentum/New Kensington tornado.
