National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed the damage in southeastern Perry, northern Dallas, and northwestern Autauga Counties and determined that it was a result of an EF1 tornado. The tornado touched down in rural southeast Perry County along Oscar Price Road just northeast of Suttle. In Perry County, dozens of trees were snapped or uprooted, and one hunting camp mobile home was destroyed. The tornado crossed County Road 219 north of County Road 6 and into northern Dallas County across Oakmulgee Creek, where at least 1000 trees were snapped in a wide swath near County Road 282. The tornado proceeded to Paul M Grist State Park and busted out windows and tore shingles off at the park center, toppled two campers, and snapped hundreds more trees. The tornado continued northeast toward Highway 22 and County Road 294, where a brick home sustained minor damage and hundreds more trees were snapped and uprooted. The tornado continued to snap and uproot many more trees across northern Dallas County. It then crossed Mulberry Creek into northwest Autauga County just north of Vine Hill, where it snapped dozens of trees. It snapped a few more trees before it lifted near County Road 31 just north of Bethel Grove.
