An EF-1 tornado with estimated maximum winds around 100 mph briefly touched down along a wooded area on the northern fringes of the town of Lewisville, and moved west northwest across the south parking lot of the M&M Quick Stop before crossing Highway 29. Several trees were snapped and uprooted, and a power pole was snapped along Highway 29 before crossing the roadway into a residential area. This tornado continued to snap and uproot several more trees just north of West 13th Street, with a large pine tree falling onto the First Assembly of God Church, as well as through the middle of a single family home on Cherry Street. The tornado snapped a few more trees along North Murphy Street, with a tree falling through a mobile home at the end of the roadway before lifting in a heavily wooded area. Much appreciation is given to the Lafayette County Office of Emergency Management for their help in providing information for this Survey.
