NWS storm survey found tornado damage in southern Gaston County. Further analysis is needed before determining if this was a continuation of the Cherokee/York County SC tornado, or a separate tornado. Damage in Gaston County began along Crowders Creek Rd near the Sparrow Spring Rd intersection and continued E/NE across Ferguson Ridge Rd, Highway 321, and Robinson Rd before ending in the area surrounding the Gastonia Municipal Airport. Damage was limited to many uprooted trees, snapped limbs, and minor structural damage along the length of the path.
