An EF-1 tornado touched down in the Kisatchie National Forest near the intersection of Bell Road and Forest Service Road 172 between Dry Prong and Georgetown, and nearly paralleled Forest Service Road 172 before widening and strengthening as it crossed Forest Service Road 131. Numerous trees were snapped and uprooted along its path, especially near and just west of Forest Service Road 131, before crossing Forest Service Road 167 and lifting. 

Much appreciation goes out to the Grant Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness for their assistance in locating the damage in this survey.
