A continuous swath of tornadic damage was encountered beginning just north of Route 558 near Hawkins Rd. and ending along Carmel Achor Rd just west of Route 170. The tornado snapped or uprooted numerous hardwood and softwood trees, causing several to fall on structures and power lines. Although many of the mobile homes encountered along the path were spared direct wind damage, it is suspected that the trees surrounding them absorbed much of the wind and spared the homes damage from the strongest wind.
A few outbuildings of varying degrees of structural integrity suffered damage as well. In multiple cases, metal roof panels were ripped off. In another, a particularly well-built small shed lost several shingles and a piece of roofing. A less-sturdy but medium-size outbuilding collapsed when its north-facing wall caved in.
In several focused spots along the path, concentrated, near-total tree damage was encountered consistent with EF1 wind speed (90 mph). Much of the remaining damage was consistent with 70-80 mph wind.
