A damage survey conducted by the NWS Wakefield office found a path of storm damage consistent with an EF2 tornado. Peak winds were estimated to be 120 to 125 mph. The tornado touched down near Athol Road just south of Mardela Springs MD causing some downed trees and damage to a roof. The tornado then moved across Main Street, causing a house to be shifted off its foundation. A shed was also totally destroyed. In addition, bark was stripped off of trees. The tornado then lifted just north of US 50 where large garage doors were blown in.
