A second tornado, an EF-1 with maximum winds of 110 mph touched-down approximately 5 miles south of the initial tornado. While not continuous, the tornado caused a well-defined path of extensive tree damage through heavily wooded areas beginning near McClendon Road and continued NE for approximately 9 miles, before finally dissipating near Pitt Road. Downed trees damaged numerous homes, of which at least 6 to 7 homes were destroyed. Numerous outbuildings and vehicles were also severely damaged or destroyed. Several turkey houses in the area also sustained significant damage.

The NWS Raleigh would like to thank Anson County Emergency Services for their guidance and assistance with this storm survey.
