A tornado touched down just west of North Monroe Street and moved east into a neighborhood where there was widespread limb and tree damage. It likely then crossed over the lake and impacted Elinor Klapp-Phipps park where snapped trees were observed. It produced some of the most widespread tree damage, including snapped trees, near Ox Bottom Road before crossing Thomasville Road. It moved northeast through Killearn Estates and Killearn Acres with additional widespread tree and limb damage and a few spots of snapped and uprooted trees. The last significant damage was additional snapped trees on Bradfordville Road. Additional tree damage was sporadic to the east of here and it is likely outflow as the tornado lifted. The highest damage was rated 95 MPH/EF1 due to snapped trees but the majority of the damage was EF0 type tree damage.
