A tornado began to the west of Ivanhoe along CR 1120. Minor house damage and notable tree damage was observed. The tornado was tracked by tree damage to the east across SH 78. The tornado did additional damage to homes, metal structures and trees between SH 78 and FM 273. The tornado intensified as it approached FM 273 in Ivanhoe.

Farther west of this location, along CR 2210, another home sustained roof damage and damage to a large metal shop. From this point, the tornado tracked in mostly open land, but could be tracked in the trees before dissipating just west of CR 2275.
