This tornado started just NE of Hamburg along Ashley 70 Rd and tracked roughly 20 miles to just east of Montrose. Thousands of trees were uprooted and snapped along the path along with numerous power lines and poles downed. Some of the heaviest damage was to a mobile home just off Ashley 129 Rd. The home was thrown 15 to 20 feet and destroyed. Another mobile home was destroyed along Ashley 128 Rd. The tornado then crossed Highway 82 near Ashley 301 Rd. Power poles were broken here and a tractor shed was heavily damaged. From this point, the tornado mostly paralleled Highway 82 or tracked along it. Many power lines were down along with poles. Just east of Ashley 912 Rd, one wooden high tension segment had the top broken out. In the Synder community, some homes sustained roof damage and had trees down on
them. North of Highway 82, near Horseshoe Lake, lots of hardwood trees were heavily damaged and there were 3 segments of the wooden high tension poles and lines taken out. The tornado continued roughly along Highway 82 toward Montrose. The strongest
core of the tornado remained north of the highway and downed 2 more wooden high tension segments before Montrose and 2 more just N of town just west of Highway 165. In the town of Montrose, numerous trees were damaged along with many homes having some degree of roof damage or a handful more with a tree on the home. Just east of Montrose, near the Chicot county line and N of Highway 82, a metal high tension pole segment was taken down which supported the highest wind estimate of 130 mph. The tornado dissipated near county road 293 on the N side of Highway 82.
