The tornado first touched down in a forested area near Horseshoe Lake Rd, uprooting hundreds of trees. Winds increased and tree damage became more widespread as trees were uprooted, snapped, and even a tree partially debarked off of End of Line Rd. The tornado took the roof off of two single family homes and destroyed an outbuilding along End of Line Rd. It then damaged shingles as approximately ten houses as it tracked along Lonewa Lane and Rose Plantation Lane. Along Lonewa Lane, the tornado snapped four concrete poles before lifting just before it crossed Keystone Rd.
