The tornado touched down just east of the Alabama/Mississippi state line and tracked eastward before quickly lifting after it crossed Tom Gaston Road. The tornado first toppled an irrigation watering system, and then passed through two private residential properties where it destroyed a barn, along with numerous broken branches and a few snapped trees. The most significant damage occurred shortly after to a private industrial property where three silos and a barn were destroyed, three empty semi trailers were tipped over, and one door of a large metal building was blown in and the other blown out.
