National Weather Service meteorologists surveyed damage in Dallas County and assessed damage that was consistent with a tornado.  The tornado touched down approximately 6 miles east of Selma along County Road 306 where minor tree damage occurred, along with roof damage to two mobile homes.  The tornado then traveled further to the northeast, to Garner and Harville Roads where several soft and hardwood trees were damage or snapped.  There was also some structure damage, with one outbuilding destroyed and one mobile home that was shifted off its foundation blocks.  The tornado lifted shortly after, near River Road, with evidence of some additional tree damage.
