The tornado appeared to develop near I-80 about a mile west of the Minooka exit. The tornado was likely responsible for blowing over a car on I-80 resulting in an injury. The tornado then went on to down at least two wooden utility poles, about a half dozen large trees, and numerous large branches. Trained spotter reports helped to further clarify this was tornado damage. There was also some spotty wind damage just north of the tornado in a subdivision, and just south within the town of Minooka.
