 Brief Description: The tornado first touched down and uprooted or snapped a number of large trees. A large annex to a barn disintegrated as the tornado passed by. The debris was scattered downwind across a field. A pickup truck was moved about 75 feet down a road and tossed into a pole. The tornado then crossed a field and uprooted a few large trees that all fell in roughly the same direction. A nearby house sustained significant structural damage and the entire structure was shifted slightly off its foundation. The tornado crossed a field and a stand of large trees. Many of the trees were knocked down in a very "chopped up" pattern.
