An EF-0 tornado touched down near Club Springs Road just north of the Caney Fork River, and then moved east-northeast across very hilly terrain, taking down several trees in the process.  Once this tornado crossed into Putnam County, several homes were impacted. Damage mainly occurred to the roofs, as well as several outbuildings on St. Marys Road.  The tornado continued to Rock Springs Road with minor damage occurring to outbuildings, as well as tree damage, before lifting just west of Stanton Road.
