The tornado touched down near Sparta Golf and Country Club on Baker Mountain Road. Most of the damage was to large trees and broken tree limbs. Several of the limbs and an uprooted tree were more of a convergence pattern rather than the straight line wind/divergent pattern at other damage locations in White County. The tornado continued northeast crossing Crossville Highway 70 knocking trees down. Additional damage occurred to the Bon Air community where several farm outbuildings and barns were destroyed near Corolla Road. A few homes had roof damage as well. Sporadic tree damage continued along Highway 70 where the tornado lifted right before reaching DeRossett Community.
