 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A National Weather Service Storm Survey confirmed an EF-2 Tornado touched down about 3 miles east of Parkton, North Carolina. The tornado first touched down along W Parkton Tobermory Road, halfway between Highway 301 and Interstate 95, with no significant damage. The tornado tracked north-northeast and intensified to EF-2 with winds to 130 mph as it impacted structures along E Everette Road. One mobile home was completely destroyed and an adult female was thrown by the tornado. The woman suffered minor injuries. Also at this location, the tornado destroyed a two story home that was empty at the time. The tornado continued to track to the north-northeast and eventually lifted across a wooded area. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A stationary boundary was located from GSB to POB southward through the Piedmont of South Carolina at mid-afternoon. A short-wave across the Georgia-South Carolina border was lifting northward across the area during the afternoon. Instability was marginal. Winds were virtually unidirectional, but there was modest speed shear through the lowest 3 kft.

 Brief Description: The tornado first touched down about 5 miles southwest of the community of Spivey. A tin roof on a farm house was peeled back and two chimneys were toppled. Two farm sheds were destroyed on the same property. The tornado crossed Williams Lake Road where a mobile home was destroyed and its remains strewn 100 yards to the northeast across an open field and into a wooded area. The storm continued northeast and destroyed four turkey houses and a wooded area was reduced to splinters. The storm continued moving northeast, crossed Ottis Tew Road and struck a wooden house. A large portion of the roof was deposited on the east side of the home. Another portion of the roof was deposited in a tree on the northeast side of the house. Splintered pieces of wood from the house and tree branches were driven into the ground. Windows on the south side of the house were broken. The southeast corner of the home had indentations caused by flying debris. Trees in the yard were twisted, uprooted and stripped of their limbs. Tin from the turkey houses and out buildings was wrapped around trees.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A National Weather Service Storm Survey confirmed an EF-2 Tornado with winds up to 115 mph about 4 miles north of Clarkton, North Carolina. The tornado first touched down at a farm along N Mitchell Ford Road. It flipped a silo and damaged a storage building that collapsed onto farm equipment. As the tornado moved north-northeast, just west of N Mitchell Ford Road, it caused minor damage to a house and shed and downed four trees. The tornado emerged from the woods near a house causing minor roof damage, then intensified from an EF-0 Tornado to an EF-2 Tornado as it impacted a house along Twisted Hickory Road. The tornado completely destroyed a cinder-block storage and farm building and sent cinder-blocks into the nearby house, causing considerable damage to the walls and roof. The back of the house lifted off the foundation causing it to buckle. The roof over the porch was completely gone. Debris from this location, which included among many other items, a washing machine, lawn mower and couch was found four hundred yards away from the house. The family took shelter under a stairway and was not harmed. The tornado continued to impact properties on the east side of Twisted Hickory Road and caused minor roof damage to three other homes and knocked down a couple dozen trees. The tornado weakened as it moved north-northeast toward Britt Road, just east of the intersection of Britt Road and Twisted Hickory Road. The tornado lifted just north of Britt Road as it moved toward a swampy area. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A mesoscale convective vortex moved to the northeast and across the area during the evening. Deep moisture and higher dewpoints were aligned ahead of a pre-frontal trough and surface low pressure in eastern South Carolina.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A National Weather Service Storm Survey concluded an EF-2 tornado with winds up to 115 mph occurred near Clarkton, North Carolina. The tornado initially touched down on Farmers Union Road about 0.3 miles south of Porterville School Road. Significant damage occurred to four homes in this area, including one which was pushed approximately 20 feet off its foundation. A storage trailer weighing more than 8500 pounds was blown approximately 40 feet and flipped upside down as it rotated 180 degrees. A full-size pickup truck was blown 15 feet across a yard and a 12 x 12 feet structure was completely destroyed. Damage in this area was rated as EF-2 with winds up to 115 mph. The width of the damage path in this area was approximately 100 yards. The tornado briefly weakened as it tracked to the northeast. Numerous 12-18 inch diameter treetops were snapped and a few trees up to 18 inches in diameter were uprooted as the tornado approached Chancey Road. Two homes on Chancey Road suffered EF-0 damage primarily to roofs and windows. The tornado continued to the northeast across mainly woods and farmland where spotty EF-0 damage was confined to trees. The tornado strengthened once again as it crossed Baer Mill Road and caused damage to two homes. The front porch of one home was destroyed and the roof covering material on the windward side of the structure was stripped. The wind penetrated the second story of the home and blew out two upstairs windows. Numerous large trees up to two feet in diameter were snapped off or uprooted. One wooden storage shed was completely destroyed. Damage in this area was rated as EF-2 with wind speeds estimated to 115 mph. The width of the damage path was approximately 60 yards at this location. The tornado weakened as it moved northeast from Baer Mill Drive. Spotty minor tree damage was observed between Baer Mill Drive and Susie Baldwin Road. There were injuries or fatalities. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong cold front moved across the area during the morning. Ahead of the front, moderate instability and favorable shear supported the development of severe weather including tornadoes.
