A brief EF-0 tornado touched down near Whites Creek, generally along Center Springs Road. Numerous trees were snapped and uprooted before the tornado moved east and over a residence causing minor roof damage to at least two homes, uprooting trees, and destroying a storage shed. The tornado quickly weakened and lifted as it moved over a heavily wooded area just to the east-northeast where remnant debris lied in the tree line. Aerial photos helped establish a clearly identifiable convergent debris pattern. The tornado damage path was 0.47 miles long and was 125 yards wide at its widest point.  The maximum winds were estimated around 75 mph.
