Just as the first tornado on David Wade Road lifted, another tornado touched down just west of Highway 98 and traveled east, paralleling just north of Old Mobile Highway and Gordon Road. The tornado lifted near Odom Road. This tornado resulted in significant tree damage, snapping a large amount of pine trees. Numerous large oak trees were also uprooted. The downed trees produced damage to a few homes. A few other homes suffered shingle and roof damage. There was also roof damage to a church at the split between Old Mobile Highway and Gordon Road. A travel trailer on Old Mobile Highway was flipped, resulting in a minor injury to one person.
