An EF-1 Tornado touched down west of Gorton Rd. and North of Highway 163 on the SW shore of Lake Bistineau in Southwest Webster Parish, LA. It uprooted and snapped trees as it crossed the lake near Moss Point Loop Rd. The tornado lifted part of the roof off of a single family home near the intersection of Diamond and Webster Roads as the storm moved east. It continued to uproot and snap trees as it moved along Woodmill Rd before dissipating after crossing Highway 371 north of Woodmill Rd. just west of Heflin. Several homes had roof damage and a small metal storage building was relocated several yards away from its foundation.
