The damage path started along and just east of Highway 17 in the town of Maysville, NC. The path consisted mainly of very small limbs and leaves and continued to the northeast. At the intersection of Jenkins Avenue and 4th Street a large section of a tree was blown down. Here top winds were estimated to be between 60 and 65 MPH. A broken path continued to the northeast across Highway 58, through the north side of Maysville. Some smaller limbs and leaf debris was found near 3rd street at the Baptist Church. The path continued to the northeast before crossing into the Croatan Forest.

Most of the damage along the path was minor, consisting of leaf litter and smaller limbs, consistent with winds of 50 to 55 mph. While the damage was minor, the concentrated path along with some convergence, shown by damage blown toward the northwest or opposite of the storm motion, was indicative of a weak tornado.

Radar imagery suggested the tornado may have strengthened once in the open forest. Future surveys may be needed and adjustments are possible.
