The tornado started just southeast of US67/62 southwest of Biggers, destroying a metal farm building and snapping trees along Lutrell Cemetery Road. The tornado continued northwest blowing in some garage doors on some large metal buildings, along with snapping limbs off of multiple trees along Gas Plant and Biggers- Reyno roads. The tornado continued northwest for several miles, causing mainly damage to trees, from broken limbs, to uprooting or snapping those tree trunks. The worst damage was observed at a site built home off of State Hwy 328 and Jerrett Loop Road southwest of Maynard, where large sections of the roof were torn off allowing a couple walls to fall inward. At the same residence, a large metal outbuilding or barn was destroyed. Many mature trees were snapped or uprooted around this location. The tornado finally lifted further northewest along State Hwy 251 south of Palestine Road.
