This tornado developed on the west side of Malakoff, south of Highway 31, in a residential area west of the post office.  A number of trees were blown onto homes and cars, causing minor roof and vehicular damage. Farther west, the tornado impacted a nursing home, causing significant roof damage. The tornado then crossed Highway 31, completely destroying a propane supply business building, and causing significant large tree damage. The degree of damage to this metal building was consistent with EF-1 tornado winds, peaking at approximately 100 mph. Immediately to the west of the propane building, the tornado produced modest roof damage to a hotel on the north side of Highway 31, before dissipating.
