This tornado developed west of Lawndale in the area around W Stage Coach Trail and Church View Dr. The tornado tracked northeast from there, crossing Hicks Hill Rd, Casar Lawndale Rd, and New Bethel Church Rd. Damage was primarily limited to snapped and uprooted trees in this area, although one mobile home received minor roof damage off New Bethel Church Rd while an outbuilding was destroyed on Hicks Hill Rd. The tornado continued to snap and uproot numerous trees and tree limbs as it tracked northeast, crossing Will Dixon Rd, Warlick Rd, and Highway 18 just north of Fallston. The tornado weakened from that point and dissipated shortly after passing into Lincoln County in the Hull Rd area.
