This summary has been updated based on analysis of Pender County Emergency Management drone footage. It replaces the previous report of a single Pender County tornado, which was issued at 5:26 PM EDT on 4/13/20. Additional analysis indicates that four distinct tornadoes impacted Pender County on the morning of April 13, 2020.
A tornado touched down just south of New Road, snapped several trees up to 14 inches in diameter, and uplifted the front porch of a home. In addition to snapped trees, numerous large limbs were broken out of pine trees along New Road. The tornado moved northeast, causing significant damage mainly to trees as it approached Stag Park Road. Several trees were snapped on both sides of Stag Park Road, and a large shed was destroyed on the east side. The tornado continued to the northeast, and snapped several trees before dissipating as it approached the Cape Fear River east of Stag Air Park.
