Minor damage occurred off Fairplay Road southwest of Townville when an unusual anticyclonic rotation developed within a larger area of straight-line wind damage.  This first tornado spun up at the beginning of the larger area of damage, bringing down a few trees, throwing wrought-iron porch furniture off the back porch of a house, and destroying a carport-like barn. Metal sheeting from the barn roof was thrown over a quarter of a mile, with a 2×4 impaled into a tractor and several into the ground.
