The tornado did minor damage around a residence which included, very minor damage to the home roof cap, a rolled and displaced air condition unit, and a destroyed free standing antenna tower. A heavy duty metal storage box with a stored car inside was also rolled onto some farming equipment. The tornado stripped significant amounts of sheet metal off two barns and caused one wall to collapse. The EF1 rating was due to four 10 inch power poles which were snapped where the tornado crossed a nearby county road. Debris from objects around the home and sheet metal from the barns were carried 100-200 yards down the path.
