A tornado began in western Wise Co near El Lago Road and Private Road 1732. The tornado damaged trees and 2 mobile homes in the early part of the track. The most significant damage occurred to property along Moonlight Bay Drive.  Dozens of trees  were uprooted, snapped or damaged in a wide swath. The roof was partially torn off of one house when the winds entered the garage and tore off the roof over the garage. The tornado then moved over Lake Bridgeport continuing to the northeast.  It damaged more trees on the northeast side of the lake between the lake shore and County Road 2952.  It did cross CR 2952 but its dissipation point could not be determined as it moved into unreachable land on the east side of the road. The tornado dissipated before reaching the town of Chico. The tornado traveled just over 4 miles and was about 0.3 miles wide at its widest point.
