The tornado began crossing Interstate 59 with one snapped softwood pine tree observed in the median of the interstate. The tornado continued southeast and likely continued to strengthen before crossing McNeil Steephollow Road, where there were several snapped hardwood and softwood trees, a few uprooted but did not observe any structural damage to homes. More damage was observed just to the south across the very end of Elmer Lee Road, with a damaged/uplifted or tipped over chicken coop, along with more softwood tree damage. The tornado continued southeast before crossing Bouie Road. A softwood pine tree was observed to be completely stripped of branches, with the top twisted off giving the tornado its likely peak maximum strength at 105 mph, along with several snapped and uprooted softwoods in the vicinity. Minor structural damage was observed nearby to a house with portion of a roof either damaged or missing. Survey continued southeast to Anner road, but did not observe any damage with the tornado likely lifting between Anner and Bouie Road.
