A brief tornado touchdown occurred on Oakcrest Dr between 5th and 8th St. A hardwood tree was snapped and fell across the road, and a fence was also blown over by the wind. The tornado moved northeast across Seapines Dr and Southgate Blvd, knocking small limbs out of trees. A large, rotted pine tree was blown over onto a fence in the yard of a home on Sheila St, and at the intersection with Bluewater St, the top of a large cedar tree was twisted out.
