Around the time that the Cleveland 2E tornado was occluding along Julian Road, another tornado began developing south of Tasso just to the SW of the New Friendship Cemetery. Many trees were snapped and uprooted in the cemetery, and a wooded area between the cemetery and a private residence was deforested. The tornado weakened as it moved across Chatata Valley Road before restrengthening along Cates Lane and Morgan Road where hundreds of trees were snapped or uprooted along with roof and cosmetic damage to a few single family homes and outbuildings. Similar damage continued as the tornado traveled along Baker Bridge Road before it began to weaken with its path becoming less defined. The  tornado dissipated near Geren and Upper River Roads where a wider area of tree damage occurred.
