This brief tornado touched down near County Road 5210 and Highway 411 then tracked roughly northeast into western Choctaw County. The tornado quickly grew and downed dozens of trees along Highway 411 just before Hurricane Creek.  Power lines were down here as well.  As the tornado crossed Kyle Road, it reached EF2 strength as a swath of significant tree damage occurred.  A few homes along the road sustained some roof damage and a few sheds were damaged.  As the tornado crossed Burks Road, the swath of significant tree damage continued.  Here a home along with a mobile home and RV were damaged by fallen trees. The tornado weakened as it crossed into Choctaw County and crossed Hunt and Mountain roads.
