A second damage swath coincident with a second radar-detected circulation and distinct from the Rogers/Negley tornado above was encountered west along Carmel Achor Road, beginning in the woods north of the road. This path proceeded south-southeastward with continuous limb damage and occasional stronger gusts leading to uprooted trees. Structural damage encountered along this segment of the path seems to have resulted from falling trees rather than wind.

The track curved eastward along Pancake Clarkson Road, crossing at into Beaver County, PA at the Pennsylvania state line, where it appears to have intensified and widened slightly. In this location, numerous evergreen trees were snapped or uprooted in the Sheepskin Hollow State Nature Preserve.

The circulation weakened quickly thereafter, with occasional tree damage continuing to near Lihi Road and Lisbon Road in Beaver County before evidence of a path disappeared altogether.

The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh appreciates the gracious assistance provided by both the Columbiana County and Beaver County EMAs in compiling and processing storm reports and in conducting storm damage surveys.
